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.
I'm currently on a 482 VISA and would like to please confirm if I would be eligible for a self-education expense claim. I've found an excellent distance learning course through Charles Sturt University that would allow me to complete a Graduate Certificate and Masters Degree, but at a cost of around $24000.
I'm residing in NSW and I'm in the process of transitioning my 482 VISA to a 186 VISA which includes PR privileges.
Thanks for your response. Would I, as a non-resident, be eligible to lodge a claim for self-education expenses? I currently do not hold a degree and the degree I'm interested in is 100% in line with my current role and future aspirations. I'm hoping that by obtaining this degree (a graduate cert that leads to a masters degree), that I will qualify for a senior management role.
