Yep, a family earning the equivalent of my DP and I combined will be paying more tax with only one working But yes, we certainly have more expenses when it comes to child care but I don't mind, I consider myself very lucky.

I think the vehicle needs vary. Both of us have always worked, but we've always shared a car, and used public transport. To some extent we selected a residence and jobs that allowed this. But that is not as easy in rural and regional areas like it is in the city. And there are certain jobs where both parents would need cars.

We get ours as a lump sum at tax time as DH is in the navy so his wage varies depending on whether he is at sea or not so it is easier to get it all at tax time rather than risk owing CL $$$$$ ESP as they seem to want it back at Christmas time.
This year it will be going towards fencing or driveways at our property!!! 👏

So if you massively overestimate your income you don't get paid the difference? Last year I overestimated DHs income by 10k. We never know with weekend work and over time etc what he will earn so I estimate well over, anyway, this year will be the same.
Last year we got the $700 for ds and the $300 for the family thing but that was it. So, even if you overestimate in a big way you still only get the $700+$300?
