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.

Hi,

 

My 457 visa is expired and I'm overseas now.

My super was held to the ATO and when I tried to get it back via ATO, i didnt get an option but to get a cheque sent to overseas. 

 

I've just logged the request today and it's supposed to be process in 28 days, is it still possible to revert it to Australian / overseas bank account instead of physical cheque?

 

Thank you.

Hi @BlakeATO 

As per your advise, I called ATO to ask that. they say they can't change it until it's issued +21 days if it's not ben cashed out.

I asked will I get notified once it's issued and the answer is I need to call to check, then wait til 21 days, then call again. 

It's very upsetting because if there's an option to get it not via cheque I would've picked it in the first place
