Oh FFS! I just went and checked mine and it said they were waiting for me to lodge my tax. I already filled in the non-lodgement information!

The same thing happened last year. I had to fill it out 3 times because it kept indicating I hadn't done it. This year, it didn't do that so I thought it had gone through! GRRRRRR!

Where are you guys seeing your info? Through the app or mygov login? If so where? I can't see anything listed!

In which case they'd surely put a future date?

I suspect it's lack of staff, not a pro-active measure.

Mine's done! Now to see whether they put it straight in the debt or whether I get it.

Centrelink still don’t have any of my info from the ATO and it’s been well over a month

Does this balancing apply to everyone who receives the subsidy? DD is only in afterschool care a few days a week, so we don’t use it as much as say a child in full time child care.

I got mine last week (though it was only for 2 weeks worth so maybe the easier ones are done first?)
