    Default Carers allowance at tax time

    Hello I have just been put on the carers allowance for my aspergers son and it all confuses me. I was just wondering if you get a lump sum payment at tax time and if so how much?

    You get up to $1600. I have got it for the past 3 years as I'm on the careers allowance as my son has Autism Spectrum Disorder.

    No I was on it for 6 months, when I first got carers allowance and I got the full $1600.

    You don't have to wait til your tax has been done or do they automatically pay it to you. I just have a few things I have been wanting to get ds for ages and hopefully I can get them for him soon.

    No you dont need to do your tax first as carers allowance is given no matter what your income is
