Spouse Contribution on myTax

Superannuation contributions on behalf of your spouse 2015

Did you make contributions to a complying superannuation fund or a retirement savings account (RSA) on behalf of your spouse (married or de facto) who is earning a low income or not working?

An RSA is a special account offered by banks, building societies, credit unions, life insurance companies and prescribed financial institutions. It is used for retirement savings and is similar to a superannuation fund.

You need to know

You will be entitled to a tax offset of up to $540 per year if:

  • the sum of your spouse’s assessable income, total reportable fringe benefits amounts and reportable employer superannuation contributions was less than $13,800
    • the contributions were not deductible to you
    • the contributions were made to a superannuation fund that was a complying superannuation fund for the income year in which you made the contribution
    • both you and your spouse were Australian residents when the contributions were made, and
    • When making the contributions you and your spouse were not living separately and apart on a permanent basis.

A spouse can be of the same or opposite sex and can include de facto relationships.

If you had more than one spouse during the income year and you satisfy the conditions for the tax offset for more than one spouse, the tax offset is the lesser of the sum of the tax offset entitlements for each spouse, or $540.

 Your spouse’s assessable income is the amount your spouse wrote at

TOTAL INCOME OR LOSS on their tax return, unless:

  • they had a distribution from a partnership or trust
    • they had income or losses from rent or business (including personal services income)
    • they had a capital gain or foreign source income,
    • they made a deposit into a Farm Management Deposit Scheme Account, or
    • They claimed a deductible amount for a foreign pension or annuity at item D11 on their tax return (supplementary section).

Your spouse’s reportable fringe benefits amounts and reportable employer superannuation contributions are shown on their payment summaries.

The tax offset is calculated as 18% of the lesser of:

  • $3,000, reduced by $1 for every $1 that the sum of your spouse’s assessable income, total reportable fringe benefits amounts and reportable employer superannuation contributions for the year was more than $10,800
    • The total of your contributions for your spouse for the year.

The tax offset for eligible spouse contributions cannot be claimed for superannuation contributions that you made to satisfy a family law obligation to split contributions with your spouse.

Write the lesser of (a) or (b). $ (c)
Multiply (c) by 18 and divide by 100.     $ (d)

The sum of your spouse’s assessable income, total reportable fringe benefits amounts and reportable employer superannuation contributions $ (b)

Take (d) away from (a). $ (e)
Amount of contributions paid $ (f)
Write the lesser of (e) or (f). $ (g)

Step 3

The tax offset is the amount shown at (d) on worksheet 1 or (h) on worksheet 2. Write this amount at A item T3. Do not show cents.

If you had more than one spouse during the year, complete steps 1 to 3 for each spouse. Your tax offset is the lesser of:

  • the sum of the tax offset you are entitled to for each spouse, or
  • $540.

Write this amount at A item T3. Do not show cents.

Step 4

Make sure you complete Spouse details – married or de facto on pages 8-9 of your tax return. Include your spouse’s taxable income at O, your spouse’s total reportable fringe benefits amounts at S and your spouse’s reportable employer superannuation contributions at A.

To work out your entitlement to this tax offset you would have used your spouse’s assessable income, reportable fringe benefits amounts and reportable employer superannuation contributions. However, because we use taxable income to calculate many other entitlements, we ask you to record your spouse’s taxable income (not assessable income) at Spouse details – married or de facto.

Work & You – Tax Refund on Spot

Being employed will mean you are accepting a compensation or a pay, and you could be full-time, part-time, casual, a contractual worker or expert. Be that as it may, what do they all mean? What’s more, how can that influence how you get paid – and how you are taxed?

Full-time

A man employed on a permanent premise, working the grant recommended least hours every week, paid consistently, and qualified for every one of the advantages and leave privileges.

Part-time

A man employed on a permanent premise, working consistent hours that are inside of a base and greatest characterized number of hours every week, and entitled for the advantages with respect to the quantity of hours worked. Part time representatives are entitled for the same working conditions as full-time representatives, including, by and large, the same hourly rate of pay.

Casual

Casual representatives take a shot at an hourly or regular schedule, however by and large work less hours than the conventional week by week working hours of a full-time worker. To make up for passing up a great opportunity for the advantages recompensed full and part time employees, additional stacking is added to casual’s pay. Casual employees can work the same number of hours or shifts as a full-time employee and still not be viewed as lasting. A few working environments however may be required to offer full-time work to an casual who works conventional hours after a certain maintained time of doing as such.

Contractor

As a rule, contractors (or consultants) are independently employed individuals utilized for a particular task, at a concurred cost, considering a particular objective, and regularly over a pre-decided time period. They set their own hours of work and deal with their own tax obligation. They aren’t paid a salary or hourly rate, and because they aren’t an employee, a contractor’s position is more effectively fired than a “permanent” employee. Being a contactor’s worker does have tax implication.

Payment

Wages and salaries are the most well-known sorts of employee payments. Wage is viewed as a pay if the work is standard and wages if it is not consistent. Both must be announced in full on your tax return – unless particularly exempted.

How to Hit Your First Tax Return Deadline

There’s nothing like a deadline to inspire action. So if you’re preparing to lodge your first tax return online, here’s yours: October 31.That’s the date you’ll need to have the whole kit and caboodle sorted if you’re doing it yourself.

Figure out if you need to lodge

It is important to check, because even if you have a casual, after-school job you may not need to lodge a return,” says Australian Tax Office assistant commissioner Graham Whyte.

“For example, if you earned below the tax-free threshold and didn’t have any tax taken out by your employer throughout the year.”

If it turns out you don’t need to lodge a return, you’ll just need to fill out a non-lodgment advice form via the myGov website.

However, if your boss has been deducting tax from your wages, and you’ve earn less than $18,200 over the year, lodge a return as soon as you can. You should get your refund in 12 days or less.

Lodging online

The ATO has two different options. For straightforward returns, use MyTax on your tablet, smartphone or computer.

MyTax automatically fills out tax returns with information provided by employers, banks, government agencies and others. Just double-check the pre-filled information and add any missing details.

For more complex tax scenarios, E-tax is your best bet, and must be accessed online via a PC or Mac.

Creating your online account

If it’s your first time, you’ll need to create an online myGov account. Have your birth certificate, passport or citizenship certificate handy, and follow the steps.

Claim all you can

Self-preparers need to remember three golden rules, Whyte says.

“To get a deduction for a work-related expense you must have spent the money yourself, it must be related to your job and not a private expense and in most cases you must have a record to prove it.

“If you keep that in mind you can’t go wrong.”
