How to get it

You can use a self-service option to get your payment summary from early July.

Use one of these self-service options to view, download or ask for a copy of your Centrelink payment summary:

Wait until mid-July to lodge your tax return

Wait until mid-July to lodge your tax return. That way your payment summary details will pre-fill in Australian Taxation office (ATO) myTax. You or your registered tax agent can get them there to do your tax return. If you lodge early, you may have to amend it.

If you can’t see your payment summary pre-fill details in your tax return, you can add it. Use the details on your payment summary to fill in your tax return. Please contact the ATO through their website if you need help.
