If you provided your Tax File Number (TFN) with your Commonwealth Assistance Form any amount of tuition fee outstanding as at the Census date will be transferred to the ATO as part of your accumulated HELP debt. You can see if your TFN  has been supplied by looking at the top section of your invoice, in the row called 'Tax File Number Supplied', Yes means you have supplied your TFN, No means you have not supplied your TFN.
