The pre-filing service will enable you to download your private health insurance tax offset details directly into e-tax.
The pre-filled details will include:
- type of cover
- health insurer ID
- membership number
- maximum claimable tax offset (after premium reductions) (G)
- the amount of rebate received from Medicare.
This information will assist in the completion of item T5.
If the pre-filing system is unavailable, e-tax cannot pre-fill your tax return for you. You can either enter your details manually or try to use the pre-filling service later. For details about when the service may be available again, see Pre-filling initiatives - e-tax.
