End of attention
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 Medicare levy surcharge or have a HELP or SFSS repayment liability
- must pay tax.
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.
If you need more information on any of the income tests, go to ato.gov.au/instructions2014 and read the Income tests questions.
