Hello, is it a legal requirement to declare my wife's income on my personal income tax return?

She is concerned that she didn't have to do that on her tax return, and wonders if my return will affect her tax?

The ATO will data match. It may or may not result in a difference - depends on your income & combined income.

 

Typically it relates to the medicare rebate you get.
