CCS Balancing

Anyone have an idea of when Centrelink start to balance payments for last financial year? We did our tax returns last month and still nothing. I’m hoping i get some money back from the withholdings!

Anyone got an expected date on their account yet? I keep checking my mygov to see if it has changed. That % of withholding would be really useful about now.

 Mid August so I'd be expecting it in the next week or so

We did our tax early July and got our returns quick but no sign of CCS :/ it's been about a month now. Apparently they are starting to process them from mid august and it's taking longer because of the new system. I'm waiting on my refund of monies paid too. Guess they don't really like giving money back 😝

 Yep from mid August. They are manually checking random balancing to double check the new system has balance correctly so not about holding back money

Yep they started processing these payments on 29 july, its on the mygov site... you’ll prob get the payment with your next family tax benefit after that date.

I think it was from July 29. Our daycare provider forwarded the info for it.

Be paitent waiting for tax payers money

 It’s my own money you di*k, they withold a certain amount of your own money to avoid an overpayment. Crawl back under the rock you came from
