Am I eligible for a Payment in Arrears Tax Offest?
According to tax legislation, your back payment otherwise known as a lump sum E or lump sum payment in arrears must be included in the financial year it was paid. Due to the payment being applicable to previous years’ income you may be eligible for a lump sum tax offset to ensure you are not adversely affected through payments of tax.
The lump sum payment in arrears tax offset is not available where the payment is less than 10% of your normal taxable income excluding the lump sum payment.
