Receiving your credits

We will work out your fuel tax credit amount and pay it into your nominated bank account.

Last updated 26 September 2021

We will work out your fuel tax credit amount and pay it into your nominated bank account. We will also issue you a notice of assessment advising you of the amount.

If you have any other tax debts, or some other Australian Government debts, your fuel tax credits may be offset against them.

Fuel tax credits and your tax return

Fuel tax credits you claimed for fuel you used to generate domestic electricity are not assessable income and you do not need to include them in your tax return.

Fuel tax credits you claimed for fuel your non-profit organisation used to operate emergency vehicles or vessels are assessable income. This means you must include them in your organisation's tax return.

However, this does not apply if you operate a non-profit organisation that is exempt from income tax. Non-profit organisations that are exempt from income tax do not need to lodge tax returns unless specifically asked to.
