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 @DMG1994

 

Thanks for your post.

 

If you are eligible, you can submit a departing Australia super payment (DASP) claim after you have left Australia and your visa is no longer in effect. For more information about your eligibility for DASP, you can check out our website.

 

From what you have advised, it doesn't sound like you have held a working holiday maker (WHM) visa. In turn, your super fund will apply the DASP ordinary tax rates (non-WHM) to the taxable component of your DASP.

 

You can find out more about how DASP is taxed on our website. Just in case it is relevant, you can also have a look at the DASP for working holiday makers page.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks, ChrisR
