Do you disagree with the result from an audit? If you know that the auditor got it wrong, then there is good news for you. There is a way for you to get the truth and justice that you so rightly deserve.
Where to Start
You will need to act quickly so that the ATO cannot say you are out of time. You will usually only have 60 days to fix this mistake. This whole mess is not your mistake; however, it affects you and your loved one’s so you need to do your best to fix it!
Following the Right Steps
The first thing you will need to know is the time frame for you to be able to object. It can range anywhere from 21 days to four years.
Secondly, you will need to understand the process and how far along you are in it. The phase that you are in most likely is the objection phase. Your goal is to make this phase work out in your favour. This is why it is wise to be prepared and have a plan. If, for some reason, this phase does not end in your favour, then it goes to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal or the Federal Court. If it goes to either of these places, then it is going to become much more difficult to object.
The third step is writing your objection. You will want to make sure that it is written in a form that is professional and state the grounds that you wish to see done. It is also important for you to maintain a clean and focused written objection. Pay attention to the facts and the issues at hand. You will need to do a little research on what the law says so that you can meet each requirement. This will give you a better chance at your objection being heard and granted. If you are not sure about what your letter should look like, you can go online and find many ATO objection letter samples.
The Main Idea
The key to being heard is making it known where you stand on the issue and then basing your decision off of that. It does not matter what you are fighting for if you have not made a clear decision on what you are aiming to achieve. A few of these things include: knowing what your rights are, knowing who to call, and what to read. These few specific keys will help you when it comes to fighting and winning your case.
You Are Not Alone
As you can see, there is a lot that goes into an objection letter. Thankfully, you do not have to do it all on your own. There are professionals that have helped other people succeed in the same area that you are in. By doing research and hiring a professional, you are sure to get the justice that you deserve.
