804 Aged Parent Visa - Tax return?

    Recommended Posts

    Hi everyone

     

    Mum is currently on a bridging visa (Bridging Visa A) whilst waiting to join the queue for an 804 visa.

     

    I was just wondering if mum was expected to complete a tax return whilst waiting for her visa to be granted (which apparently could be many years!)

     

    Mum is retired, doesn't work, hasn't applied for a Tax File Number and has no intention of working!

     

    Can anyone please advise as to whether the tax return is something that is needed or not?

     

    Many thanks in advance. :smile:

    If she isn't working, and doesn't even have a tax file number I wouldn't have thought so, but I'd definitely check with the ATO.

    I think she will need to alert the ATO that she is here, she will still need to get a tfn I think but she can make a declaration that she hasn't earned enough to pay any tax.

     

    The ATO are reasonably helpful if you call or e mail with the query.
