Boost your spouse’s super and get a tax offset
If your spouse earns $37,000 or less or isn’t currently working, you can both benefit if you add money to their account. They’ll be rewarded with a boost to their super and you’ll be able to get a tax offset of up to $540.
Here’s how it works
You make a contribution to your spouse’s super account from your after-tax income. You can then claim an 18% tax offset on contributions up to $3,000. Your spouse gets a boost to their super and you could get cash back in your pocket at tax time.
To be eligible for a full offset your spouse must earn $37,000 or less in the financial year you contribute money on their behalf and you must add $3,000 or more. For a partial offset, your spouse must earn less than $40,000 in the financial year you contribute money on their behalf. Contributions can be made as a one-off transfer, or a recurring payment.
