In order to do any testing on this program, a "TFN" or Tax File Number is required. "123456782" passes validation, and can be used to test operation of the software.It is not, however, a valid number at the tax office, so you cannot use it to test verification or lodgement.
Use the latest Wine:
Make sure you are running the latest version of Wine (currently 1.1.26). You can check your version with the command:
If you do not have the latest version, follow the instructions at Wine Binary Downloads
You need msxml via winetricks. Run this command:
Once you have the etax install file, run it with Wine:
$ msiexec /i etax2009_1.msiHopefully the entire process will complete successfully. If you encounter a problem, please file a bug or post a comment.
At present, securely verifying your identity and lodgement does not work. These steps must be carried out on a windows machine.
