The news was that has miscalculated my tax income so I actually owed the Tax Office more than my Return stated. The bad news was I had already submitted this so I would have to resubmit the correction
I recalculated my tax and resubmitted my claim.
I then raised a claim with AMP for monetary compensation for this time of redoing my tax return., in which I was told to wait 21 days

I thought this was a bit silly considering it was a simple yes or no , so I responded with
“I’ve waited 19 days , waiting an additional 24 days on top of that now I think is unacceptable with two days notice, so I am going to change this into an AFCA complaint if I don’t have an update by your original 21 day resolution SLA on the 9th September”
The next day I got the following response
