    Education tax refund has been replaced no longer any need to keep receipts! In June a payment of $410 will be paid to you as the first payment!

    But isn't the $410 only if you are eligible? If you aren't eligible then as far as I know you can claim some on tax with receipts but please check with ato or accountant.

    The Education Tax Refund was the one you claimed with the ATO & receipts only it no longer exists now- the new budget repeals it. Now you get $420 a year for primary school kids $84o for high school kids no receipts required and it will be paid in 2 instalments- one in January one in July. I expect it will be fairly similar to the old rules whereby you need to be getting FTB part A to be eligible.

    So no you can't claim anything on your tax return if you're not eligible for the new Schoolkids money.

    Here's the link to the Government website http://www.humanservices.gov.au/cust...hoolkids-bonus
