Do you claim your Family Tax Benefit as a lump sum? If so time is running out.
Centrelink changed the rules a few years ago, parents who DO NOT receive their Family Tax Benefits on a fortnightly basis MUST NOW complete a lump sum claim form each year.
Families must complete their 2015/2016 tax return and submit their online lump sum claim form by 30 June 2017.
With less than 3 month before the end of financial year, we urge families who have not already completed their income tax return and have not submitted their lump sum claim form, to do so now.
We have had many families ring us up in panic after the end of financial year, saying they forgot to claim their Family Tax Benefits and it heart breaking to have to say, that it is too late.
We would appreciate if you could remind the parents at your centre that this deadline is approaching, by send an email or distributing the attached flyer.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office on 02 9524 2744 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
