  • Rebate income 2018

    We work out what we call 'rebate income' to determine whether you are eligible for the seniors and pensioners tax offset at T1.

    Your rebate income is the total amount of your taxable income plus the following amounts if they apply to you:

    • adjusted fringe benefits total, which is the sum of
      • reportable fringe benefits amounts you received from employers exempt from fringe benefits tax under section 57A of the Fringe Benefits Tax Assessment Act 1986 multiplied by 0.53, and
      • reportable fringe benefits amounts from employers not exempt from fringe benefits tax under section 57A of the Fringe Benefits Tax Assessment Act 1986
       
    • reportable employer superannuation contributions
    • deductible personal superannuation contributions
    • your net financial investment loss (that is, the amount by which your deductions attributable to financial investments exceeded your total financial investment income)
    • your net rental property loss (that is, the amount by which your deductions attributable to rental property exceeded your rental property income).

    To work out your rebate income, use the following worksheet.
