Who can get it
You need to meet eligibility requirements to get Family Tax Benefit (FTB).
There are two parts to FTB:
- Part A
- Part B
We pay FTB Part A per child. Read more about FTB Part A eligibility.
We pay FTB Part B for a variety of family circumstances. Read more about FTB Part B eligibility.
You must meet certain residence rules to get FTB Part A and Part B.
If you can’t get FTB, you may be able to get other payments.
We pay Family Tax Benefit (FTB) Part A per child. The amount we pay you depends on your family’s circumstances.
We may pay you FTB Part B if you’re a single parent or non-parent carer, a grandparent carer, or if you’re a member of a couple with 1 main income.
Your child must meet immunisation requirements if you get Family Tax Benefit (FTB) Part A or child care fee assistance.
We use your adjusted taxable income to work out your eligibility for some payments or services.
