Mature age worker tax offset

If you were an Australian resident 55 years old or older on 30 June 2012 and you have received certain income from working, you may be eligible for the mature age worker tax offset.

If you have net income from working as a result of amounts that you show at items in the supplementary section of the tax return, you will need to complete item T12 - Net income from working - supplementary section so we can work out your mature age worker tax offset entitlement.
