School Subsidies & the Schoolkids Bonus
The Schoolkids Bonus is a payment from the Federal Government to a parent or carer receiving Family Tax Benefit Part A for a dependent child in primary or secondary education. It provides $422 a year for each child in primary school and $842 for each child in secondary school. This year, from 1 January 2015, payments will be subject to an income test and will only be payable to families with an adjusted taxable income of $100,000 or less. You can find out more about eligibility at the Department of Human Services website.
Assistance for Isolated Children
If you have a child at primary or secondary school-age who can’t go to a state school because of geographical isolation, disability or health reasons, the Assistance for Isolated Children scheme may provide tax-free payments exempt from income and assets tests. Find out more at the Department of Human Services website.
