Do you have a MyGov account?

What is a myGov account you ask? It is a secure way to access a range of government services online using one login and password.

It allows you to link the following services to your mcGov account:

  • Medicare
  • Australian Taxation Office
  • Centrelink
  • Australian JobSearch
  • My Health Record
  • My Aged Care
  • Child Support
  • Department of Veterans' Affairs
  • National Disability Insurance Scheme
  • Victorian Housing Register Application

In linking these accounts to your myGov it allows you to have one secure and safe place to store important letters, statements and messages from:

  • Medicare
  • Australian Taxation Office
  • Centrelink
  • Child Support
  • Department of Veterans' Affairs
  • National Disability Insurance Scheme

If you have linked your myGov account to the Australian Taxation Office, you can expect to receive the following ATO notices via your myGov inbox:

  • notices, such as notices of assessment
  • statements of account
  • confirmation and reminder notices
  • activity statements or instalment notices

Not only can the ATO contact you via your myGov inbox, if you enter your mobile number they can also send text messages and call you directly.

It's important to note that while HTA may be listed as your registered tax agent, by linking your myGov to the ATO, you have agreed to receive ATO correspondence via your myGov inbox rather than via your registered tax agent (HTA).

If you would like more information on the ATO and myGov inbox check out the ATO website.
