Worried you’re missing part of your refund? Remember, the low and middle income tax offset isn’t a refund on its own – it’s used to offset (or reduce) the amount of tax you pay. The offset amount you may be entitled to is automatically applied and could range between $255-$1080, depending on things like your taxable income and how much tax you’ve paid.

I am living abroad and my annual income remains under $18,200. Will I be required to pay tax on this amount?

If so, will I be required to pay tax quarterly? Or can I complete my tax return yearly without the hassle of paying tax installments throughout the year?

Hello @Rennyelle13 

If you are living abroad and are still a resident for tax purposes and earning an income you have an obligation to declare this income to the Australian Taxation Office by completing a tax return each year.  You can do this electronically using myGov and linking to the ATO Online service. Information about how to declare Foreign employment income on the return can be found here
