Question A3 Super co-contribution question from TaxPack

Throughout this workbook when we refer to 'item X' we refer to the item numbered X on your 2011 tax return, and when we refer to your 2011 tax return, we refer to all of the following, whether or not you have used them all:

  • Tax return for individuals 2011
  • Tax return for individuals (supplementary section) 2011
  • Business and professional items schedule for individuals 2011.

See the glossary for the specific meaning of the following terms for the purposes of this workbook:

  • business deductions
  • business income
  • eligible income
  • employment income
  • ineligible income
  • joint income
  • joint income group
  • solely earned income
  • super co-contribution
  • temporary resident
  • total income.

Why we need information at A3

We use item A3 to ensure you receive your correct entitlement to a super co-contribution. When we work out your super co-contribution, we use your 2011 tax return to work out your eligible income and assessable income.

In some cases we need additional information to determine these amounts and calculate your entitlement. For example, we will treat your partnership distributions shown at item 13 as ineligible income unless you tell us otherwise by completing item A3.
