Government services are important
There are lots of reasons you might need to access government services, from renewing your drivers licence, to searching for lost superannuation.
Until recently, accessing government services meant going into town to an office location, and waiting in the queue.
Nowadays, you can access most services from a website or from an app on your phone. Almost everything you need is at the click of your mouse (or tap of your finger).
What can government services do for me?
As well as helping you manage your personal information, such as ID and official address, you can also use government services to:
- Save money by applying for rebates
- Apply for discount or concession cards
- Find lost money
- See the rules or steps for things like making a will or selling your home
- Check things, like when your car registration is due for renewal.
Being able to do all this online or is much faster and easier than going into an office or even calling on the phone.
What you need to access government services
The way you access different Tasmanian government services depends on which service you are using.
You may need to provide information from a printed bill or notice, such as the Payment Number on your vehicle registration form.
Each service will let you know what you need to provide when you access that service online.
