  • Child support you paid

    Things to know

    This section is about amounts you paid or benefits you provided to another person other than your partner for the maintenance of your natural or adopted child.

    Don't include amounts you paid or provided to a person to acquire goods or services.

    Completing this section

    You will need details of the amounts you paid or benefits you provided to another person other than your partner for the maintenance of your natural or adopted child.

    At Personalise return, you don't need to make a selection to show Income tests, as it's always displayed at Prepare return.

    At Prepare return, select 'Add/Edit' at the Income tests banner.

    At the Income tests heading:

    1. Enter at Chid support you paid the total amount you paid and benefits you provided for the maintenance of your child during 2020–21.
    2. Select Save and continue when you have completed the Income tests section.

    For income test purposes, the amounts you paid and the benefits you provided for the maintenance of your child will be deducted from the total of the other components that make up your adjusted taxable income.
