The first of the Federal Government’s stimulus bonus payments are being sent this week. Payments will be made in a random order, according to postcodes. In order to receive your bonus, you need to file your 2007-08 tax return before June 30th this year.
Taxpayers earning less than $100,000 will receive a one-off bonus of up to $900, as part of the Federal Government’s $42 billion stimulus package.
The idea is to spend your bonuses to help stimulate the Australian Economy. Keep in mind when purchasing certain products such as electronics, you will most likely not be supporting Australian products, however you are supporting Australian jobs.
