刚才查网银发现怎么莫名其妙多了 900 刀？上面写着 ATO Tax Bonus，该不是中奖了吧？我人都在中国了而且好久没跟税务局有亲密关系了都……
陆克文总理给澳大利亚人发红包了！Tax bonus 计划是针对 07-08 财年纳税人的奖励，纳税人最多可以获得 900 元，钱将直接打入退税时提供的银行账户，只要满足条件如下：
1、年收入 10 万刀以下；
2、参与了 07-08 年的退税；
3、退税单（notice of assessment）中 “tax on taxible income” + “medicare levy” – “tax offsets and other credits” 的计算结果大于 0。
如果满足上述条件，恭喜了，最多 900 块钱的额外收入。
If your 2007-08 taxable income was $100,000 or less and you paid tax, you could be eligible to receive a tax bonus payment of up to $900.
The 7.6 million people who lodged their 2007-08 tax return before the end of March 2009 will receive their payment between early April and mid May 2009.
Payments are being made progressively so please be patient, we will pay you automatically if you are eligible.
Because of the large number of payments we’re making, we ask you not to call us about the progress of individual payments until after 16 May 2009.
What do you need to do?
If you have already lodged your 2007-08 tax return the Tax Office will automatically calculate your eligibility and entitlements and send your payment to you.
We will transfer the payment into the bank account or mail a cheque to the address you nominated in your 2007-08 tax return, unless you or your agent changed your details.
Unless you were granted a deferred lodgment date by the Tax Office prior to 18 February 2009, you must lodge your 2007-08 tax return by 30 June 2009 to be eligible.
You can lodge your return online using e-tax until 31 May 2009, by mail using TaxPack 2008 or through your agent. Please note that e-tax will not be available after 31 May 2009.
The Tax bonus calculator will help you determine your eligibility and estimated payment. You will need your 2007-08 notice of assessment.
