Not refundable.  These offsets can be used to reduce tax payable, but are not refundable, nor are they available to offset the Medicare levy.

 

   
Changes from 1 July 2012
Minimize

From 1 July 2012, the Pensioner Tax Offset is no longer available and all individuals who would otherwise have been eligible for the Pensioner Tax Offset instead receive the Seniors and Pensioners Tax Offset (SAPTO). 

 


   
Eligibility

If you receive an Australian Government pension, or other payments or allowances paid by Centrelink listed at Question 6 in Tax Pack, but you do not qualify for SATO because you are below age or service pension age, you may be eligible for the Pensioner Tax Offset subject to your 'rebate income' being below the thresholds listed below.  Different amounts apply to payments from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
