Online Tax File Number (TFN) Declaration Forms

Tax File Number Declaration forms are now electronic

  • Employers no longer need to order paper TFN forms thereby eliminating waste and inefficiencies
  • You can download a form from the ATO’s website
  • https://www.ato.gov.au/forms/tfn-declaration/
  • New employees download the form and then complete the form on-line
  • The employee then prints and signs the form and gives the form to their employer
  • The employer should keep a copy of the form on file
  • The employer sends the original copy to the ATO within 14 days
  • The whole process has therefore become more efficient with less waste
  • Attention should be given to HECS/HELP debt if applicable and also claiming the tax free threshold if the employee has multiple jobs
