    Default Do I need to tell centrelink? Tax?

    I didn't work at all last financial year and received FTB. What I'm wondering is do I need to tell centrelink that I am not submitting a tax return and if so do I ring them or can I do it online?

    You still have to submit a tax return, I thought?

    You need to do a non lodgement, you can either call centrelink or do it online.

    you need to submit a non lodgement either by phone or online.

    If you're waiting on any end of financial year centrelink payments, you won't get them until both partners (unless single) have submitted their returns or non lodgments.

    Pretty sure PPP (and all centre link 'payments') are defined as taxable income. They will have a "Payment Summary" (what used to be called a group certificate) available online from today and it should arrive in the post soon. You will need to do a tax return in that case.

    If you get PPP and FTB you don't need to lodge. Just get online and tell them of non-lodgment. The only reason you would need to lodge is if you have tax coming out of your payments, which you will get all of back.
