How do I get a Tax File Number (TFN)?

You can apply for a Tax File Number (TFN) through the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) or Australia Post. Please be aware that it can take several weeks to obtain a TFN.

If you are applying for a TFN for the purpose of accessing a HELP and have not yet received your TFN, you can obtain a 'Certificate of Application for a TFN' from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), or an Australia Post TFN application summary with the matching barcoded receipt, and submit it to your Student Centre by the census date.
