Spouse details – married or de facto

How to complete the spouse details section of your return using myTax.

Last updated 18 June 2015

Did you have a spouse during 2014–15?

Your spouse includes another person (of any sex) who:

  • you were in a relationship with that was registered under a prescribed state or territory law
  • although not legally married to you, lived with you on a genuine domestic basis in a relationship as a couple.

Answering this question

You will need:

  • your spouse’s tax return
  • your spouse’s PAYG payment summary – individual non-business
  • if your spouse had child support obligations, the details of the amount of child support they paid (your spouse can get this information from Services Australia).

If your spouse did not lodge a tax return, you will need to obtain the information required from your spouse or their records.

If you had more than one spouse during 2014–15, complete this section with the details for your spouse on 30 June 2015, or for your last spouse during 2014–15.
