If he agrees to his return being used to pay for his partners centrelink debt, yes.
My partner and I always get asked if returns can be used to pay the other ones debt if there is one when we do tax
No. Centrelink took mine this year but couldn't touch my husband's after claiming I owed them 5k.
Of course, they then had to return it plus the money they owed me because they screwed up BIG time. So make sure you owe it first.
