The threshold for writing off tax to pay has been increased for people using the automatic tax calculation process. Previously tax to pay of $50 or less was written off under the “auto-calc” process, but this has increased to $200 this year to help ease the financial stress caused by COVID-19.

People using the auto-calc process do not need to do anything to take advantage of the increased threshold. If the auto-calc shows tax to pay of $200 or less, it will automatically be written off.

Note that this only applies to auto-calc customers. It does not apply to IR 3 customers. The threshold will return to $50 next year.
