Your 2020-21 Centrelink payment summaries are now available
5 July 2021
Your Centrelink payment summary shows your taxable and some non-taxable payments from us for the financial year.
Payments shown on your payment summary
By now the ATO should have pre-filled your Centrelink payment information into your tax return.
Not all payments you get will show on your Centrelink payment summary. Find out which payments are included on your Centrelink payment summary.
If you got the Coronavirus Supplement, you won’t see it reported separately. You can find it included in the total of the payment you received with the supplement.
The below payments are taxable, but will not appear on the Centrelink payment summary. We will report these separately to the ATO. If you received any of these payments you must include them in your tax return:
- Consumer Travel Support Program (rounds 1 and 2)
- Pandemic Leave Disaster Payment.
Find out how you can get your Centrelink payment summary . You can also get this information though the ATO’s myTax lodgement service or through a registered tax agent.
Wait to lodge your tax return
Wait until the ATO pre-fills your income information for 2020-21 before you lodge a return. If you lodge too early, you may need to amend your tax return later. Find out what other pre-fill information you may need on the ATO website.
If we change your 2020-21 Centrelink payment summary, we’ll send you an updated one.
If the change was for the 2019-20 financial year, we’ll also send an update to the myTax lodgement service. If the expected change doesn’t update, please check with the ATO.
Check if you need to lodge a tax return on the ATO website.
