Balancing your family assistance payments

After the end of the financial year we balance your payments to make sure we pay you the right amount.

Use our balancing checker to see What you need to do at tax time.

We balance family payments each financial year. This is so we can check we paid you the right amount of Family Tax Benefit and Child Care Subsidy.

Most families need to do something so we can balance their payments. What you need to do depends on the payment you get as well as you and your family’s circumstances.

We balance Family Tax Benefit and Child Care Subsidy separately. If you get both you may need to do different things to have both payments balanced.
