    Default chilcare rebates

    Can someone please explain to me what we are entitled too. Df gross earns $1300-1400 a week. We get some centrelink but not all. I tried doing online estimators but found it confusing

    The childcare rebate is not means tested, you should get, 50% or $7500 back per annum which ever is the lesser, regardless of your income.

    There is the child care benefit too, which is based on your income, sorry, I don't know what the salary cap for it is.

    I found the best thing to do was submit a claim for everything, they'll tell you what you are and aren't entitled to.

    Child care rebate is for working/studying parents. It is paid fortnightly in arrears and doesn't always get paid on the same day each fortnight.
