If you get a Centrelink payment, PLDP won’t appear on your Centrelink payment summary. You’ll still need to declare PLDP to the Australian Taxation Office in your income tax return.
You can check how much PLDP you got by viewing the letter either:
- in your Centrelink online account through myGov
- through the post.
If you get Family Tax Benefit or Child Care Subsidy, you must include PLDP in your family income estimate as taxable income.
If you have a child support assessment, the payment will form part of your adjusted taxable income for Child Support. You must include it in any income estimate you lodge for the 2020-21 financial year.
