What’s the difference between doing your tax return with ATO myTax or with One Click Life?
For starters, it won’t take you 4 hours to complete your tax return like on ATO myTax Australia. Unless you’re prepared to spend your Friday night sifting through documents and receipts. Otherwise, there are much easier, quicker ways to do your online tax return.
Some people are okay with sitting there trying to figure out how to use myTax and are happy to deal with the ATO alone. Others think it’s an absolute nightmare, especially adding deductions on myTax.
A tax agent is on your side assisting you to maximise your tax refund. One Click Life is intuitive, assists in advising on deductions through robo advice and if you need more help, there is a whole team of tax specialists available at the end of a message, phone call or video meeting.
I’m sure you can agree when we say, most Aussies just want their taxes done fast, and better tax refund to add to that.
So, what is myTax like compared to using an online tax return service or tax agent?

Most of Australia prefer using a tax agent over myTax myGov
It’s no secret that most people prefer to use tax agents. The Australian Taxation Office has released statistics to show that most Aussies do their taxes with a tax agent. But why?
That’s because people simply aren’t keen on spending 4.2 hours lodging their tax return through myGov (the nation’s average). They want it done fast. They want quick online support. And they want a better tax refund.
People use online tax agent services like One Click life because they are quick, simple and much easier to access!

Who do you trust with your taxes?
Remember you don’t have to face the ATO alone. Although myTax is free, you’re also doing it alone. This means you won’t have someone you can trust by your side.
Using an online tax agent like One Click Life, means your tax return is convenient, fast and stress-free. Plus you have full confidence in knowing your tax return is trouble-free and is the best possible refund.
Because of ATO tax laws, you may have to pay a penalty if you accidentally claim too much, can’t prove it, or file your tax return late. Your tax return is checked by a qualified accountant to minimise the likelihood of ATO penalties and delays and we commit to making every best effort to keeping you up to date with your tax lodgements.

Get the most out of your work from home claims
The average Australian tax refund is $2,600. The best thing you can do to maximise your refund this year is to complete your tax return with a qualified tax agent like OCL.
Australia’s Assistant Commissioner Tim Loh told a media outlet,
“What we want to do is make it really easy for people working from home for the first time to claim those WFH expenses”..
This also means the ATO is going to be watching very, very closely for what you are claiming on your tax return.
With a friendly OCL tax agent who’s on your side, our job is to help maximise your refund, while helping you avoid any problems that could delay your refund or trouble with the ATO.
Tax deadline extensions with a registered tax agent
The ATO tax deadline is always looming, but you still have a chance to avoid getting penalised.
ATO assistant commissioner Tim Loh went on to say…
“The longer you wait, the chances are you’re missing out on a refund”
With a registered tax agent like One Click Life, you still have time to get your income and expenses, meaning a fine is unlikely if you happen to miss the deadline. However the ATO still requires you to engage a tax agent before 31st of October.
Don’t wait days or weeks for a response..
Get quick advice and support from a friendly accountant while doing your tax
Using myTax to lodge your tax return takes up enough of your time as it is, with the national average sitting at 4.2 hours to complete on myGov. The last thing you want is to have to wait days or weeks before you get a response from the ATO.
One Click Life is also tax deductible! Meaning you can claim this advice back on tax on your tax refund when lodging your tax return.
