For each pre-filled payment, indicate the Type of income that best describes the nature of the income. Choose from:

Further information that may assist your choice:

  • If you received income mainly for your personal efforts or skills, special personal services income rules may apply. Use our tool to work out if those rules apply to you as this will affect how you complete your tax return.

myTax will show the payment at your selected section, to assist you as you enter relevant information at that section.
