Your income and deductions

You pay income tax on money you receive, such as salary and wages, Centrelink payments and bank interest.

You may be able to reduce the amount of tax you pay by:

  • claiming deductions to do with your job
  • getting tax offsets or government rebates.

You must keep records that prove what you put on your tax return.

For help, phone us on the Indigenous Helpline 13 10 30.
