Don’t miss out on tax bonus payment
Time is fast running out for people who may be eligible for the tax bonus payment to lodge their 2007–08 tax return.
Tax Commissioner Michael D’Ascenzo said there are less than two weeks left for people who think they are eligible for the payment to lodge their return so they must act now.
“More than 8.4 million people have already received their tax bonus payment but we think there could be up to 280,000 people yet to lodge who could be eligible,” Mr D’Ascenzo said.
“If you don’t lodge your return by 30 June 2009 you will miss out on the payment.
“You can lodge your 2007–08 return by mail using TaxPack 2008 or through your tax agent or accountant.
“If you do lodge your 2007–08 return before 30 June, and you’re eligible for the bonus, you’ll get your notice of assessment in late July and the tax bonus payment should arrive in August.”
