Tax Laws For Resident and Non-Resident
You need to work out if you are an Australian or foreign resident for tax purposes to understand your tax situation. The Department of Immigration and Border Protection does not use the same rules which means you can be an Australian resident for tax purposes without being an Australian citizen or permanent resident or may have a visa to enter Australia, but are not an Australian resident for tax purposes.
You must declare on your tax return any income earned in Australia if you are a foreign resident including
- Australian pensions and annuities
- Rental income
- Employment income
- Capital gains on Australian assets
If you have a HELP (Higher Education Loan Program) or TSL (Trade Support Loan) debt you may also need to lodge a return or non-lodgment advice.
If you are an Australian resident for tax purposes, you generally have to declare all income you earned both in Australia and internationally on your Australian tax return.
