Re: Family Benefits - where to declare

Where in the online tax return do I enter the Family Assistance/Allowance payments that I received?
Could not find an answer whether or not I actually have to enter those anywhere.
I expected that those payments were already pre-populated, just as my small work and interest income, but apparently that is not the case.
Please advise.
Thank you!

hi @SF92 ,

I take it you are referring to Family Tax Benefit (which is exempt, and doesn't need to be included anywhere in the tax return), however, other payments from Centrelink/Services Australia need to be included. For more details, see amounts that you do not pay tax on 2020.

 

Thanks,
