    Let's hope VP doesn't come across any poor kids with a lemonade stand or they'll be going to juvy.

    I'm not trying to convince anyone of anything. I am confident in my own assessment that the OP, although in tough position, by intending to seek regular undeclared payment in exchange for her services, is doing something that's just not right. And not smart considering she could get paid significantly more by obtaining legitimate employment for that same period. Of course I didn't intend for this to drag out and detract like it has. To be honest my original intent was to give a slight hint that the OP may want to watch what she says in the thread as I am aware that centrelink and ATO investigative officials occasionally trawl sites such as this. That was honestly all my original intent was. Didn't mean for this to happen. Apologies OP.

    Hope you don't claim your ftb with each year then VicPark if you consider it to be welfare. .. and leave it to someone who truly needs it. funny how someone who earns $150,000 can still get 'welfare ' each year.

    You should also familiarize yourself with rules in reagrds to taxable income and also what Centre link deems as income because it sure as hell is quite obvious you have no idea at all.

    Can't believe you would even make such a comment about OP casually getting $30 cash in hand.

    You're clearly not a professional so I'm pretty confident you don't know your *** from your head

    OP has stated her current level of taxable income is $15k. supposing she made $30 each week for 52 weeks, that's $1,560. total taxable income if she did declare the extra takes her to $16,560

    tax free threshold is $18,200

    so even if she did declare it, it's tax free anyway.

    My kids and run a fruit stand over the summer school holidays (one year it ran for 4 weekends the next year only 3 days (. I talked to both centrelink (ftb) and the ato. Both agreed it was a hobby not a business therefore not reportable. Even though it was a lot more than the op is talking about.

    You know what girls, I actually felt sick to my stomach when there was a mention that I might have been doing something wrong....

    When I wrote this thread a few weeks ago I was absolutely at rock bottom. I had no one to talk to and I was so embarrassed. This thread actually saved me from a really dark place.

    For some reason the thread was reopened and then BAM! My gut absolutely sunk again.

    I thought either the tax office might hunt me down, or worse, Tracy Grimshaw!

    Anyway, thanks to everyone for having my back. Right back at ya, sista's. I feel your love and concern and I appreciate it.

    I guess it's a lesson for anyone who is really concerned about another hubber going down for tax fraud, perhaps send a polite pm, rather than hashing it out for all of the a t o legal team to read.

    Oh, and don't ever use the term "cash in hand" ever again...or sh*t's about to get real!

    I would just like to say Moosey, I really admire you, your family was in a bit of a "pickle" shall we say and you asked for advise, you were completely pro-active and you found a solution to get yourselves out of that position, pretty quickly too!

    You have done nothing wrong at all, you have done what you needed to do and in a completely legal way. I hardly think you have committed fraud! I think someone was just looking for an argument tonight...
