Tax-free Government Pensions and Payments

You will be entitled to receive an income tax-exempt pension, allowances or other payment, if you have disability or you take care of someone who already has a disability.

The tax-exempt income includes disability support pension (if you are below age-pension age), the carer adjustment payment, Veterans’ Affairs disability pensions and allowances and many other payments. These  incomes call tax free income which means that you don’t need to pay tax on it.

It’s okay if you not include income in your accessible income but you need to keep in mind that you still need to disclose this income in your tax return.

The payments are taken into account when working out your adjusted taxable income (ATI). Your ATI is an income test use to check for that you eligible or not for certain tax offsets.
