From January 2013, the Schoolkids Bonus will replace the Education Tax Refund that was previously claimed through the tax system.
One-off EducationTax Refund payment for 2011-12
As part of the transition to the new Schoolkids Bonus a one-off lump-sum payment will be made in June 2012 to families in place of the Education Tax Refund for the 2011-12 financial year. This payment replaces the refund you would usually get from the Australian Taxation Office after doing your tax.
You will receive the one-off Education Tax Refund payment ahead of tax time. You won’t need to provide receipts or make a claim when you do your tax.
If you’re eligible, the one-off Education Tax Refund payment will be automatically paid into your nominated bank account. You don’t need to make a claim or call us.
The payments will be made from 20 to 29 June 2012. You will receive $409 for each child in primary education and $818 for each child in secondary education.
You will receive the Education Tax Refund payment if you were eligible on 8 May 2012 for:
Family Tax Benefit Part A for a dependent child who is:
•5 to 11 years of age (primary education)
•12 to 15 years of age (secondary education), or
•16 to 18 (or turning 19 years of age in the 2012 calendar year) and
•in full-time secondary study, or exempt from full-time study.
If you share the care of your child with another person, you will receive a percentage of this payment. This will be based on the percentage of Family Tax Benefit you receive for the child.If you claim Family Tax Benefit as a lump sum, you will get the payment (if eligible) when your lump sum claim is assessed.
You may also receive the Education Tax Refund payment if on 8 May 2012 if you were:
•16 to 18, (or turning 19 years of age in the 2012 calendar year)
•in full-time secondary study, and
•eligible for Youth Allowance, ABSTUDY (Living Allowance) or Disability Support Pension with Pensioner Education Supplement.
If you were not eligible for one of the above payments on 8 May 2012, but you would have usually claimed the Education Tax Refund through the Australian Taxation Office, you may also be entitled to a one-off lump-sum payment from July 2012.
If you don’t receive an Education Tax Refund payment and think you may be eligible, contact us after 1 July 2012 for assistance.
