    If you overestimate- centrelink usually owes you. We overestimate about 10k each financial year. It's sort of forced savings for us, we don't notice it through the year as we budget on it not being there-then we get a lump sum at tax time.

    if you underestimate you may find yourself with a tax bill.

    If you recieve FTB a and b - yes they should. At least the withheld $1k they do to offset any overpayment will come back, then the payment rate you should have received is calculated and the difference between what u received and what you should have is paid to you.

    You'll get a nice lump sum payment once all your tax has gone through

    We are wondering the same thing. I overestimated DP's earnings by 8-9k.

    Just jumping in with a quick question (sorry OP)

    I'm sure we have over estimated dfs income so that's ok.

    Last night I managed to get on to online services to say I'm not lodging a tax return and for the 2012/2013 year I estimated my 'income' (ppp) to be $14,000, on their advice through the year. My 'income' was only about $6,500. Will that matter that I received way less then I estimated I would?
