    Attention

    Warning:

    This information may not apply to the current year. Check the content carefully to ensure it is applicable to your circumstances.

    End of attention

    Use this part if you were a resident of Timor-Leste for tax purposes during 2005-06. Otherwise, proceed to Part 3 - Resident of another country.

    What you need

    • All your payment summaries for the 2005-06 income year
    • Details of your JPDA income - from your employer or your pay slips
    • TaxPack 2006 and TaxPack 2006 supplement if you are completing a paper tax return. See More information to find out how to get copies of these publications.

    You need to know

    Ten per cent of your income earned for work or services performed in the JPDA is taxed in Australia. Your payer should have deducted Australian tax at the minimum rate of 29% on 10% of your JPDA income.

    When completing D1 to D5, you show only 10% of your expenses relating to your work in the JPDA.

    What you need to do

    Before you start on item 1 of your tax return, complete worksheet 3 for each payment summary that includes JPDA income.
