ATO and the myGov Inbox

Most of your ATO mail will now come directly to your myGov inbox, rather than the post.

If you have linked us to your myGov account, most of your ATO mail will now come directly to your myGov Inbox, rather than through the post. This is to help you manage your taxation and superannuation affairs in one place and make record keeping easier and more secure.

The types of ATO mail you may receive in your myGov Inbox include:

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

ATO digital communications containing personal information, such as a tax file number, will be sent to your myGov Inbox, rather than your email account, due to legal and privacy requirements.

If you don’t have a myGov account linked to the ATO; you, or your tax or BAS agent (Highview), will continue to receive your ATO mail via the post. But we recommend you make this activation – saving time and paper!
