What’s on it

Your payment summary shows your taxable and non-taxable payments the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) need to know about. You need this to lodge a tax return.

This shows all of these:

  • your Centrelink payments and allowances
  • payment dates
  • taxable and tax exempt amounts
  • tax withheld amounts that show as deductions.

There are both taxable and non-taxable payments that show on your payment summary.

There are payments that don’t show on your payment summary that you need to report in your tax return.
