    So you are actually saying that you think the OP is committing fraud. Wow.

    This has to be one of the biggest over reactions I've seen on BH.

    Good on you OP
    I find it absolutely absurd you think someone disagreeing with an individual not declaring income and paying tax to be "one of the biggest over reactions I've seen on BH."
    Since when did tax evasion and welfare fraud become normalized? I hope you never complain about the Government cutting benefits because you don't have a leg to stand on. Geesh.

    Not at this point. However if the 'helping' out the family friend continues (as the ops previous posts indicated) and the income is not declared then yes I absolutely would consider it to be welfare fraud.

    Wow. The OP started this thread to get help through a tough time. We all go through tough times - even financial ones. Through the thread the OP has given us an insight into what was happening in her life at that time and it was difficult.

    I think that maybe you should just take a minute and think of what you have been saying. You have essentially accused her of tax fraud for a few $$$. In tax returns you do not have to declare that. The family friend is not her employer.

    It can't hurt to be a little more supportive to someone who is upset and in need of support - not judgement.

    VicPark how much tax are you required to pay on $30 a week?

    Given the tax free threshold is 18k a year.

    Yes it's a massive over action and ridiculous to be throwing term around like welfare fraud and tax evasion.

    How do you know the OP claims welfare?

    You DO NOT legally need to declare gifts, presents, winnings , prizes or anything received out of a non business activity , accepting a cash gift as thank you for helping me shop comes into this category - unless of course he's hiring her as a personal shopper 😉
