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.

Dear ATO

I'm a sole trader and started my business on Dec'2019 (Got my company name registered on Dec'19) but did my first sale only on 21st feb'2020. I had some income for the month of February'2020 & March'2020 and my income was '0' for the month of April'2020.

Based on the above, could you please let me know if I'm eligible for Job keeper ? I invested lot of money in this and the business is drastically affected by Covid'19.

Thanks in advance.

Regards
Anitha
