I have a current centrelink debt for overpayment. The debt is currently being investigated as the debt was only raised due to a centrelink administrative error. The last advice I received was that the investigator could see the error was on centrelinks behalf and I am now awaiting someone higher to overturn the debt (although the tell me this could take some time) - so at the moment collection is on hold.
If I submit my tax return now whilst the debt is under investigation, will my return be automatically taken to recover the debt, even if the debt collection is on hold?
