How to manage your payment
Your options and obligations for Family Tax Benefit.
We use your family income estimate to work out how much family assistance to pay you. This includes Family Tax Benefit (FTB) and Child Care Subsidy (CCS).
After the end of the financial year we balance your payments to make sure we pay you the right amount.
What you need to do to balance your family assistance depends on your circumstances.
You have 1 year from the end of the financial year to confirm your income for Family Tax Benefit (FTB) and Child Care Subsidy (CCS). Or claim FTB as a lump sum.
If you got an income support payment we may balance your Family Tax Benefit (FTB) without you doing anything.
