If your partner has employment income

Your partner’s assessable income may also change with the Work Bonus.

This can happen if both of these apply:

You can’t use your Work Bonus for your partner’s wages or self-employment income. However, applying the Work Bonus to your wages or self-employment income earned from active participation will affect your combined income. This means your partner may benefit from the reduced amount of your assessable income for the income test.
