Centrelink reminds us that you must lodge your 2015 income tax return by 30 June 2016 to retain eligibility to your Family Assistance for the 2015 Financial Year.
Family Assistance includes Family Tax Benefit Part A and B, Family Tax Benefit Supplement, Child Care Benefit and Single Income Family Supplement and School Kids Bonus.
If you are not required to lodge a tax return, maybe because your income is below the tax free threshhold, then you must still advise Centrelink that you are not required to lodge.
If you are not sure if you need to lodge, the ATO have a simple calculator to use here: Do-I-need-to-lodge-a-tax-return/
Please contact us to arrange lodging your tax return on time and ensure that you don’t miss out on your Family allowance entitlements.
