I thinking this yr I may do it my self and save the $150 I spend on my accountant.
I played around with etax (did not submit) and also w the ato etax amd my refund estimate was so different beyween the two.
etax asks for a fee where as ato is free.
qhay does everyone else use?.. and how long does does it take to be depositted in to your account?

I think you will find etax, downloaded from the ATO site is what most people use. As pp said above return time is generally within 2 weeks.
Don't use the other etax. You will have to pay a fee if you do. The name of the site is just a dodgy way to suck people in. They think it's the etax everyone uses then end up having to pay a fee.

My dad is a retired accountant and he does my tax on the ATO etax site. Never had an issue and the refund is often quicker than 2 weeks.
The only benefit of an accountant is they often know about things that you can claim, that you might not otherwise. If you have a pretty simple tax return (PAYG with no major deductions) then you can probably do it yourself.

The etax thing is so easy to use, I use it every year for mine and my partners taxes.

I've always downloaded etax from the ato website. I wasn't aware there was a different version that charges a fee.
Dfs tax is pretty straight forward so I've never had an issue. When I was working same thing. We get our return within a fortnight.

Etax is actually an online accountant, they charge a fee because they are actually a person lodging on your behalf. Also, accountant fees are tax deductable, so last years fee will be a part of your return.

If you have a simple and straight forward tax return, you might as well do it yourself. There is no benefit in paying someone to do it on your behalf.
