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, the ATO will pay you automatically if you are eligible. Because of the large number of payments the ATO is making, they ask you not to call them about the progress of individual payments until after 16 May 2009. For more information on the tax bonus payment, see the Tax bonus payment fact sheet.
