This interactive application will ask you questions about your personal circumstances to help determine whether you need to lodge an income tax return this year.

Information you will need

  • details of any income you have received and tax withheld from employment or in respect of a pension, benefit or allowance
  • whether you have had tax withheld from any other payments that have been made to you
  • whether you are eligible for an Australian Government pension – as a war veteran or war widow or widower
  • for the purposes of the seniors and pensioners tax offsets, you will need to know your rebate income and your spouse’s (if applicable) rebate income – for further information regarding this, refer to Income tests calculator.
  • If you have investment income or are a beneficiary from a trust, you will need to know whether you were entitled to receive a franking credit from a dividend or trust distribution

You may need additional information depending on your circumstances.
