Chapter 4: Applying for a Tax File Number (TFN)

Published: 04-11-2019



Applying for a Tax File Number (TFN)

Before you start working in Australia, you have to apply for a Tax File Number (TFN) from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). Your TFN identifies you for tax and super purposes (so you won’t need one if you’re only planning to do volunteer work).

You can apply online for a TFN, in person or by post.

 Tip: If you find applying online or by post is confusing, you can always go to a myGov shopfront (available in Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, Albury (NSW) and Brisbane for help. For more info, read myGov — Contact us.
