Hi,

I am trying to use the on-line form to lodge my tax return.

I have an offset for super contributed to my spouse's super to claim

However under the offsets heading, there is no provision to add the claim. Only Seniors an Pensions offset is available, plus the prefilled component from my super fund.

 

Cheers

Gary

on screen 3 (personalise return) you should indicate you have a spouse AND tick 'other offsets' under offsets - the option to claim this offset should then be avaliable to fill under the offsets section.

Hi @Gary57,

 

The information @smouldery has provided is correct! If you need any further assistance whilst completing your tax return you can request a live web chat when you are logged into your myTax account. This will allow an ATO officer to share screens with you and we can provide assistance in real time.
