We purchased our first home late last year using our own deposit (40k), supplemented by a FHSS release (15k less tax) however due to an adjustment at settlement there was a $2k residual.
So our total deposit worked out to be approx $53k, (exceeding my FHSS release). As not all of the FHSS release funds were used at settlement, will I be required to return the residual FHSS release funds into Super or can I use the residual FHSS release funds for a different purpose (ie not for the home purchase)? If I use the residual FHSS release funds for a different purpose (such as white goods or repairs) can you please confirm how much tax I will incur on that residual amount (as a percentage given exact figures weren't provided)?
