Re: Will I get all the previously withheld money at tax returns if I now request tax free threshold?

I had not claimed a tax free threshold from the employer previously and thus tax was being deducted at a higher rate (for almost 10 months now).If I claim it now, shall I get the withheld money upon tax returns?.

 

Thanks

Regardless of whether you claim it now, the threshold will be applied when you lodge your tax return & you won't get it back now

Thanks a lot. So it means I won't get back the extra paid money even in the form of tax return?

You will get it back of course when you lodge your tax return as the first 18200 is tax free even if you have not claimed it from your employer
