Child Care Rebate

Recommended Posts

BluJay

I used child care for the first time last year, from February 2016 to July 2016.

 

I get CCB and had CCR paid direct to service.

 

I see there is 15% CCR retained in case of overpayment - my question is do I have to claim this myself or would it have already been paid to me automatically? I don't recall an extra payment but I might have missed it.

 

Thanks

I don't recall receiving a reconciliation letter.

 

I don't earn any income so told them I do not need to lodge an tax return at the end of the financial year. Does this matter?

 

I will go through my bank records. Is it listed separately from family payments or just included in one of the payments one fortnight?

I don't have a partner. And I am on DSP.

 

I definitely got CCR and had it paid direct to service. My son and I wouldn't have been able to use daycare without it.

 

I tried to check MyGov for my previous payments but it was down - will check again now.

 

Thanks

I was thinking the same thing. If you're not earning an income do you actually qualify for the rebates?? There is a work / study test you need to meet to obtain the rebates.

I got a small, seemingly random, payment on August 2nd 2016 - would this be it? I wouldnt expect it to be much as he was only there for two days per week for about four months.

 

I just want to make sure I am doing what I am supposed to, as he has gone back to daycare this year in readiness for kinder next year, so when the new financial year comes around I vaguely understand what I am doing this time!

 

So at the end of the financial year I tell them again that I am not required to lodge a tax return and that is all I have to do?

 

Thanks

There are various exemptions from this test, one being receiving the DSP.

Check your inbox on MyGov to see if you got a letter regarding a reconciliation.
