  • Update on tax treatment of Services Australia income compliance program refunds

    For individuals who receive a refund from the Services Australia income compliance program, they or their tax agent do not need to take any action for tax purposes. That is:

    • They will not be taxed on this amount.
    • They should not include it in their tax return.
    • They do not have to submit an amendment for a prior year return.

    Submitting an amendment may impact their assessable tax income and any repayment amounts. If they need to lodge an amendment for other purposes, they should contact the ATO or their tax agent for assistance.
