Preparing now can save you time later.

When it comes to tax time, everyone’s different. It’s a good idea to prepare now. This way you can find out what you’ll need to do to have your payments balanced.

There are a few things you can do get ready.

Use our Tax Time Checker and examples

Simply answer a few questions. The Tax Time Checker will tell you what you need to do so we can balance your payments.

You can also look at the most common examples to help you balance your family assistance. They’ll help you understand what you need to do.

Update the Express Plus Centrelink mobile app

If you want to use the app to give us your details, make sure you have installed the latest version.

Remember, you don’t need to do anything yet, but it’s a good idea to prepare.

We won’t start balancing your payments until after we’ve paid your last Family Tax Benefit payment for 2017-18. You’ll receive your final regular payment between 3 July 2018 and 16 July 2018.
