Worried you’re missing part of your refund? Remember, the low and middle income tax offset isn’t a refund on its own – it’s used to offset (or reduce) the amount of tax you pay. The offset amount you may be entitled to is automatically applied and could range between $255-$1080, depending on things like your taxable income and how much tax you’ve paid.
Prior to Covid-19 I worked two casual jobs. I was stood down from both positions in March, and was not eligible for JobKeeper with either employer at that point (having not been there for the required amount of time). With the recent JobKeeper amendments, I became eligible for JobKeeper under both employers. I'm currently receiving JobKeeper from one of those employers.
If I resign from this job, and withdraw from JobKeeper, am I then able to apply for JobKeeper through the second employer? I'll be on tier 2 (less than 20 hours a week) with either of the employers, so there won't be any difference in the amount I'd receive.
