Don't miss out on FTB or CCS for 2018-19
22 May 2020
Confirm your 2018-19 income now for Family Tax Benefit (FTB) and Child Care Subsidy (CCS).
Families need to confirm their income by lodging a tax return with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).
You need to do this by 30 June 2020 if you got FTB or CCS in the 2018-19 financial year. If you don’t both of the following will happen:
- you’ll miss out on your FTB supplements and top ups for that year
- your CCS will reduce to zero from 13 July.
You may also have to repay all the FTB and CCS you got for the 2018-19 financial year. This includes FTB and CCS paid directly to you, and CCS paid on your behalf to a child care provider.
If you or your partner don’t need to lodge a tax return, you need to tell us and confirm your family income. To ‘Advise non-lodgement of a tax return’ you can use either:
You can also call the Families line and say ‘non-lodger’ when we ask why you called.
If you have a partner, they need to confirm their income too.
If you’ve already confirmed your family income for 2018-19, there’s nothing else you need to do.
If you’re not able to confirm your family income by 30 June 2020, call the Families line.
Tell us if you or your partner don’t need to lodge a tax return. To find out how, use either:
- our Centrelink online account help guide advise non-lodgement of a tax return online
- our Express Plus mobile app guide to advise non-logement of a tax return using our app.
