About my spouse taxable income

Hi,

I need to enter my spouse's taxable income in my tax return,

She received just a government payment like( Jobseeker Payment or newstart allowance).
Is this total amount she received throughout the year consider as taxable income, even if it is under the threshold?

 

Regards,

 

Yasser

Yes, they would be included as those payments are classed as taxable income.

 

For example if she did earn over the tax free threshold then she would be taxed on them.

If I lodged my tax return, and I put 0 zero in all my spouse's fields, how can I fix this?

and if I can't, what should I do?

 

Thanks
