If this isnt you, try our Tax Time Checker. You can also have a look at our common example scenarios to see what you need to do to balance your payments.

FTB supplements

You’ll only be eligible for FTB Part A supplement if your income is $80,000 or less. Read more about changes if you receive family assistance payments.

You may have been paid the FTB Part A supplement. If you lodge a tax return and your confirmed adjusted taxable income is over $80,000, you’ll have an overpayment. You’ll need to pay the supplement back.

Talk to us if you’re worried about paying it back. We can work with you to set up a repayment plan you can afford.

Child care payments

From Monday 24 July 2017 we’ll balance child care payments separately. This is to make sure we receive all attendance information from your child care provider. We’ll usually balance your payments within 2 weeks.
