Does anyone know do I need to put in a claim to get Child Care Benefit payment after doing my tax or do they work it out automatically once getting your income? We claim the rebate f/nightly and CCB as a lump some because our incomes are hard to predict and the year before we had a debt. We only just did our tax from the 2011/2012 financial year and i was expecting something but so far nothing. I spoke to CL but I came away more confused.
