  • Services Australia income compliance program refunds

    If your clients receive a refund from the Services Australia income compliance program, you do not need to take any action for tax purposes.

    Your clients:

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

    Lodging an amendment may affect your clients' assessable tax income and any repayment amounts.

    If your client has received a refund from Services Australia under this program and you need to lodge an amendment for them for another reason, contact us for assistance.

    For further information about this program, you and your clients can contact Services Australia.
