Registering for the ATO’s online services and SuperSeeker
To register for a secure login to the ATO’s online services and SuperSeeker, you will be asked questions about your identity - the answers you provide will be checked against their records to confirm your identity.
To access these services, the first thing you need to do is register for online services and create a secure login. This is an important security measure, and once registered you will be able to access your information 24/7.
For help with registering, watch the ATO’s video
What you need to register
Make sure that you have the following information handy when you create your secure login:
- Your tax file number (TFN)
- Your name and date of birth
- Shared secret information
You can find your TFN on:
- Your income tax notice of assessment (NOA)
- Correspondence sent to you by the ATO
- A payment summary - for example, from your employer or Centrelink.
You will need to provide your date of birth, first given name and family/surname that has previously been reported to the ATO. If you are unsure what you have reported to the ATO, refer to letters or notices they may have sent you.
A shared secret is specific information relating to you that is provided to the ATO by certain organisations and institutions.
You will need to provide information from two different documents listed in the table below. However, you cannot use two shared secrets from the same type of document - for example, you cannot use two notices of assessment from different years.
|Document||You will be asked for||Maximum age of document|
|Notice of assessment (NOA)||
||Issued within the last five financial years|
|Super account member contribution statement||
(for an interest bearing investment account eg a term deposit or an account that the ATO paid your tax refund into)
||Issued within the last two financial years|
|PAYG payment summary
(Formerly known as a 'group certificate')
|Centrelink payment summary||
