HowTo / Notes

TFN Number

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.
HOWTO

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:

wine --version

If you do not have the latest version, follow the instructions at Wine Binary Downloads

Use winetricks:

You need msxml via winetricks. Run this command:

wget http://kegel.com/wine/winetricks && sh winetricks msxml4

Installing ETax:

Once you have the etax install file, run it with Wine:

$ msiexec /i  etax2009_1.msi

Hopefully 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.
