  • Income tests 2017

    You must complete all questions in this section of your tax return. Where the amount is zero, write 0.

    We use income tests to work out whether you:

    • can claim certain tax offsets and the amount you are entitled to receive
    • can receive some government benefits or concessions
    • are entitled to a rebate for your private health insurance
    • must pay tax
    • must pay Medicare levy surcharge
    • have a Higher Education Loan Program, Student Financial Supplement Scheme, Student Start-up Loan, ABSTUDY Student Start-up Loan or Trade Support Loan repayment liability.

    We may also pass this information to other government agencies, such as the Department of Human Services, to ensure you are receiving your correct entitlement to government benefits. It will also be used to correctly determine any child support payments.
