Excess superannuation contributions

Excess contributions tax and how funds report your contributions
This document explains when, how and what super funds must report to us. We use these reports and information from your income tax return to work out if you have exceeded a super contributions cap.
Super contributions - too much can mean extra tax
There are caps on the amount you can contribute to your superannuation each financial year that are taxed at lower rates. If you contribute more than these caps, you may have to pay extra tax.
