Lodgment reminder for Child Care Subsidy and Family Tax Benefit recipients
If you or your partner has not lodged 2021 Individual tax returns by 30 June 2022, Services Australia may stop access to your Child Care Subsidy (CCS). This means you will have to pay the full cost of childcare.
Recipients of the Family Tax Benefit (FTB) are also required to lodge their 2021 tax returns by 30 June 2022 in order to receive their correct FTB payment amount.
The ATO understands that recent flood events may have affected an applicant’s ability to access records and complete their lodgments.
Whilst you may qualify for a lodgment deferral with the ATO, a deferral to lodge after 30 June 2022 will not prevent Services Australia from stopping your access to the CCS or the FTB.
If you or your partner are unable to complete your outstanding lodgments before the deadline, Services Australia can assist those with special circumstances. Call Services Australia on 13 61 50 to discuss your situation.
If you are not required to lodge a tax return for the 2020–21 year but have not yet informed the ATO or Services Australia, you should:
- notify the ATO that a return is not necessary before 30 June 2022, and
- also notify Services Australia directly.
