You can no longer claim the Education Tax Refund (ETR), it has been replaced by the Schoolkids Bonus.
You cannot claim the Education Tax Refund in 2011-2012 tax returns. The Department of Human Services made one-off payments to eligible families in June 2012 in place of the refund they would otherwise have claimed. If you think you are eligible and did not receive a payment contact the Department of Human Services.
From January 1 2013 the Schooldkids Bonus will be paid automatically into the bank accounts of families who are eligible to receive it. The payment will be staggered in two instalments: half in January and the second half in July. You do not need to keep receipts or claim the payment in your tax return.
