myTax returns inaccurate

One of our accounting industry publications discussed a recent study of the 2.5 million tax returns submitted through the government’s myTax portal. Just over 60% contained errors. It was particularly interesting to note that about two thirds of the errors were actually detrimental to the taxpayer’s position.

Some other recent research showed that while 90% of self-lodging taxpayers were confident that they had completed their myTax returns correctly, over half of them were unable to accurately describe the correct treatment of common tax deductions.
