Hi @JA9,

 

Thanks for posting.

 

Usually, department of defence income is exempt however that is based on certain requirements.

 

If you have received a department of defence income statement that states it is taxable then yes, you must declare it.

 

I’m going to link you to a few pages so you can get a clearer understanding if your payment is actually taxable of not and even deductions and or expenses you may be able to claim:

 

And here I will provide you links for every tax return label instructions where defence income has been mentioned for some type of scenario:

 

If after reading through those you still need assistance, your more than welcome to reply and we will get back to you.

 

All the best Smiley Happy
