In early July  the ATO will make their latest version of etax available for download (see link at bottom of page below). 


Good news first -  We continue to update our knowledge base/tax blog, offering effective tax tips both for now and over the next tax year. Here are a couple of samples that will help you get the best tax refund possible and be informed of relevant tax changes:


New items on tax return forms - Last year there were quite a few NEW items on the tax return form which caused problems for many self preparers. The changes included income tests used to work out some tax offsets, deductions and the Medicare levy surcharge. These changes could increase the amount of tax and Medicare levy surcharge you have to pay in 2009-10 and reduce the amount of Spouse tax Offset, Senior Australians Tax Offset and Pensioner Tax Offset. They will also affect the 2011 tax return.

You may be affected by the changed income tests if:
  • you pay child support
  • your employer has made extra super contributions for you such as salary sacrifice super contributions – these are called reportable employer super contributions
  • you have rental properties, and the deductions you will claim exceed the income you have derived from them
  • you have financial investments and the deductions you will claim exceed the income you have derived from them.
Now that the income tests include these additional amounts, your income may be above the existing income thresholds. This means that you may:
  • no longer qualify for certain tax offsets or you may only qualify for a reduced amount
  • no longer qualify for super co-contributions or personal super contribution deductions
  • be liable for the Medicare levy surcharge
  • be required to pay more of your Higher Education Loan Program or Student Financial Supplement Scheme debt.
