Do I include my partner's income on my tax return?
This is a common question we get asked all the time. Don’t worry, you don’t have to pay tax on your partner’s income, however, it is needed in case you have to pay extra Medicare Levy or pay back some of the private health insurance rebate you received during the year.
These things are based on your combined annual income. In certain situations, putting in your partner’s income may get you a bigger refund if you are entitled to a Medicare Levy reduction or exemption.
As soon as you say you have a spouse in your etax return you are required to enter their income, even if it is zero. Your etax return will not be able to be lodged unless this information is entered.
So, when you are asked to enter your partner’s income*, we are not being nosey or difficult, we are only trying to get your etax return correct.
*You can include an estimate of your partner's income, it does not need to be exact, a 'ball park' figure will suffice.
