End of attention
You need to complete the Claimant's details section on page 1 of your claim. What you complete depends on whether you are required to lodge a tax return or an application for refund of imputation credits.
If you are required to lodge a tax return or an application for refund of imputation credits the only claimant's details you need to complete on your baby bonus claim are Your tax file number and Your name. You do not need to complete any other claimant's details. You must lodge your baby bonus claim with your tax return or application for refund of imputation credits, or your claim may be returned to you. Go to Your base year and taxable income details.
If you are not required to lodge a tax return or an application for refund of imputation credits you must complete all of the claimant's details on your baby bonus claim or it may be returned to you.
Your tax file number (TFN)
If you already have a TFN, it will be on your last notice of assessment from the Tax Office or your payment summary from your employer or other payer.
If you do not have a TFN, phone the Personal Tax Infoline on 13 28 61, press 2 to be directed to the appropriate area to get a Tax file number application or enquiry for an individual (NAT 1432 - 7.2003). With your application you will need to provide original, unaltered documents showing proof of your identity. You will find a list of appropriate proof of identity documents on the application.
Do you want to use electronic funds transfer (EFT)?
If you are lodging this claim with your tax return or an application for refund of imputation credits and you have completed the EFT details, do not complete them again - we will use the information you have provided on your tax return or application for refund of imputation credits.
If you want to use EFT for your baby bonus print X in the YES box and complete your BSB number (which must be six digits), account number and account name for an Australian account.
If you do not want to use EFT print X in the NO box.
