If we issue you with a default assessment notice because you did not lodge a periodic, annual or final return by the due date, you will be charged penalty tax (75% of the betting tax). This is in addition to your existing betting tax liability.
Penalty tax may increase by up to 20% in certain circumstances.
Penalty tax may be remitted in some instances. Read the public ruling on penalty tax (TAA060.2) for more information.
