End of attention
You need to complete the claimant's details section. What you complete depends on whether you are required to lodge a tax return or an application for refund of franking credits.
If you are required to lodge a tax return or an application for refund of franking credits, the only claimant's details you need to complete on your baby bonus claim are your tax file number and your name. You do not need to complete any other claimant's details. You must lodge your baby bonus claim with your tax return or application for refund of franking credits, or your claim may be returned to you. Go to Your base year and taxable income details.
If you are not required to lodge a tax return or an application for refund of franking credits, you must complete all of the claimant's details on your baby bonus claim or it may be returned to you.
Your tax file number (TFN)
If you already have a TFN, it will be on your last notice of assessment from the Tax Office or your payment summary from your employer or other payer. If you do not have a TFN, phone the Personal Tax Infoline on 13 28 61 to get a Tax file number application or enquiry for an individual (NAT 1432). With your application you will need to provide original, unaltered documents showing proof of your identity. You will find a list of appropriate proof of identity documents on the application.
Do you want your refund paid directly into your financial institution account?
If you are lodging this claim with your tax return or an application for refund of franking credits and you have completed the account details, do not complete them again - we will use the information you have provided on your tax return or application for refund of franking credits.
If you want your baby bonus paid directly into your account, print X in the YES box. If you provided your account details last year and they have not changed, do not write them again. If not, complete your BSB number (which must be six digits), account number and account name for an Australian account.
