• Before you start

    Before you start your tax return, you will need:

    • your Centrelink PAYG payment summary (Figure 1) – at the end of the financial year (30 June), your payment summary is available online to print or you can phone Centrelink and ask for it to be posted to you
    • your BSWAT letter of offer from the Department of Social Services (Figure 2) which shows your eligibility for the payment and the offer made to you
    • 'Attachment E: Important tax information' which is part of your BSWAT letter of offer (Figure 3) – the table in Attachment E shows the years of employment your BSWAT lump sum relates to and the amount you have been paid.
