I have received a payg payment summary. does this mean I owe tax? I do not work so I'm guessing I dont.

 

Any responses I appreciate.

Hi @bold12

 

Thanks for getting in touch!

 

You can use our Do I need to lodge a tax return? tool to help work out if you need to lodge a return. If you received youth allowance payments during the year and had tax withheld, you'll need lodge a return to report these amounts. If the information hasn't pre-filled in your return you can use the figures provided in the payment summary you've received.

 

If you lodge online you can use the 'Live chat' function when in section 3 and 4 of your return to connect with an officer who can assist you with lodging your tax return in real time.

 

Thanks, JodieH.

A PAYG Payment Summary is the total money that your earned and the total tax that you paid.

 

What dates are on it?

 

01 July 2018 to 30 June 2019?

Are you sure that it is a PAYG Payment Summary?

 

Is that what it is called at the top of the page or is it called an "PAYG payment summary – individual non-business" ?

 

Normally, if you worked there twice 01/07/2018 to 18/04/2019 and then 18/05/19 to 30/06/19 they would issues separate ones.
