    Default some tax related questions and FTBa&b 'bonus' type payment?

    firstly, i just recieved some money from centerlink for child care benefit and child care rebate (this is after i had submitted my tax return). i just realised that in this payment i havent recieved any back pay for over estimating our combined income for FTBa and b.. does this come in a seperate payment?

    also, friends of mine keep telling me that if you get i think FTB b (i think, it could be a though) that they are going to receive about 650 bucks per child? what is this moeny for? i hope i get it? i get both a and b so i should, but i just dont know why or when i will get it?

    They are talking about the supplement payment. It is basically money that is withheld from your F/Nly payments so that if you do get a debt at reconciliation time you already have a bit up your sleeve to pay it off, otherwise if you overestimated you get it back. It doesn't matter if you get part b or not, so long as you get FTBA you will get it. I would assume that it will be paid separately to the CCR.

    oh right, i get it. so is it 650ish for each child or just the one?

    i still think it is wierd that i got my child care stuff seperately to everything else though. got it about 3 days after i lodged my return online. havent had any tax return $$ yet either.

    I got my CC payment yesterday - I rang to check what it was for and they said that the FTB reconciliation should be done by September 1 and if I hadn't heard from them by then to contact them.

    Hope that helps!

    there are two supplements on to of any arrears you may get for overestimating
    if you accurately or overestimated your income, there is a payment of 711 and some odd cents per child for ftba. there is another if you qualify for ftbb - around 358 per family.
