We’re messaging some families who get the Coronavirus Supplement

18 January 2021

If you get Family Tax Benefit, we may send you a reminder to include the Coronavirus Supplement in your income estimate.

To remind you, we may send you a text message, email or myGov message.

Because of the recent Coronavirus Supplement extension, it’s important to check your family income estimate. The supplement is a taxable income and you must include it in your estimate. You must include all amounts of taxable income you and your partner expect to get for the whole financial year.

You may need to update your income estimate if you get your Family Tax Benefit (FTB) fortnightly. This includes when your fortnightly FTB payment is zero.

Keep in mind, we’re sending these out as a friendly reminder. If you believe your income estimate is right, you don’t need to do anything.
