# Rebate income 2017

Work out your rebate income and if you're eligible for the seniors and pensioners tax offset at question T1.

Last updated 24 May 2017

We work out what we call 'rebate income' to determine whether you are eligible for the seniors and pensioners tax offset at T1.

Your rebate income is the total amount of your taxable income plus the following amounts if they apply to you:

• adjusted fringe benefits (that is, the total reportable fringe benefits amounts multiplied by 0.51)
• reportable employer superannuation contributions
• deductible personal superannuation contributions
• your net financial investment loss (that is, the amount by which your deductions attributable to financial investments exceeded your total financial investment income)
• your net rental property loss (that is, the amount by which your deductions attributable to rental property exceeded your rental property income).

To work out your rebate income, use the following worksheet.
