Hi all, I've tried ringing centrelink, but well over a 35 min wait and I just don't have time!
We had our tax done yesterday and our family income is significantly lower than what I had estimated it would be. I did the online estimator and we are actually eligible for family tax benefit for last financial year based on what our actual income was. Does anyone know if I need to put in an application for FTB for last financial year in order to get paid it? Or will it be done automatically? I did an application and it told me we weren't eligible, based on what my estimate was at that point. Also, we are eligible for a much higher percentage of CCB, but I assume that will be sorted automatically, as we get ours paid direct to the centre, so that 15% that is held back is usually refunded anyway.
