- had a reportable fringe benefits amount on their PAYG payment summary
- had reportable employer superannuation contributions on their PAYG payment summary
- made a loss or can claim a loss made in a previous year
- were an Australian resident for tax purposes and had exempt foreign employment income and $1 or more of other income
- are entitled to the private health insurance rebate but did not claim their correct entitlement as a premium reduction
- were a liable or recipient parent under a child support assessment unless both of the following applied
- They received one or more Australian Government allowances, pensions or payments for the whole year.
- Their income was less than $24,535.
