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.

Re: Jobkeeper eligible and starting a new second job

Hello,

I am currently eligible and receiving Jobkeeper from my primary employer whilst stood down.  I have also recently received a 6 month full-time contract for a second job. 

 

I would like to claim the tax-free threshold from the second for the period of the 6 month contract and not claim the tax-free threshold from my Jobkeeper payment for this period since the second job will pay more money than Jobkeeper. 

 

Is this tax change allowed or do I have to claim the tax-free threshold from the job that pays me Jobkeeper?

Thank-you.

Hi @SiranU 

 

Thanks for getting in touch with us.

 

The tax free threshold is not tied to the JobKeeper payment at all, so you can change that without consequences to JobKeeper.

 

Hope that helps

thanks
