End of danger

If you are only using this workbook for more information about the meaning of employment income when completing item A3, refer to the Glossary.

When we refer to your 2010 tax return, we refer to all of the 2010 tax return, whether or not you have used all sections, namely:

  • Tax return for individuals 2010
  • Tax return for individuals (supplementary section) 2010, and
  • Business and professional items schedule for individuals 2010.

We use item A3 to ensure you receive your correct entitlement to a super co-contribution. When we work out your super co-contribution, we use your 2010 tax return to work out your eligible income and assessable income.

In some cases we need additional information to determine these amounts and calculate your entitlement. This is why you need to complete A3. For example, we will treat your partnership distributions shown at item 13 as ineligible incomeunless you tell us otherwise by completing item A3.
