What you may do is contact the ATO telephone service line and explain to them that your son is off site, not able to receive mail and request an extension of 60 days to allow your son to respond to the letter.

If the ATO is not in agreement with this step the next option is to ask an accountant to contact the ATO on behalf of your son to seek a delay with the process and to allow time for a follow up response.

The ATO will work with the accountant appointed.

Sometimes the ATO only requires an explanation into what has occurred as they are lacking information on certain financial matters. Once these points are cleared up with the ATO the situation returns to normal.

I am sure your appointed accountant will be able to clear this matter.

Would you like to consider this option ?

You have a legal right to protect your interests in this important situation.

If you need any further information let me know and I will be pleased to assist.

You can come back to this post any time to ask questions and there will be no further charges to you.

Don’t forget to rate me 5 stars as this supports me helping the community, and your important questions.

Have I answered your question today ?

would prefer to speak directly arthritic fingers too slow. Hopefully son will have access to office managers phone and call or have a better reception.I will then give the two options you have given, and request off him to allow me to act on his behalf, is this legal?
Will inform you of any results if any. Thank you for advise.
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Yes you can act on his behalf once your son extends his authority and it is legal for you to do so.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
