Hello

Not sure if you still need assistance but

If you're an Australian resident the easiest way to apply for a TFN is to:

  1. Complete the online formExternal Link.
  2. Print the summary, which will include your application reference number, and take it to your Australia Post interview.
  3. Attend an interview at a participating Australia Post outlet within 30 days of completing your online form. You'll need to take your printed summary and proof of identity documents to the interview.

Use this following link to get the form

https://smarteform.com.au/onlineforms/ato/tax-file-number-application-or-enquiry-for-individuals/

If you still cannot use the Australia Post service you can apply in person at an ATO shopfront by completing the paper form you can get from Centrelink.
