The taxable component of such payments is detailed on the Payment Summary received from the Superannuation Fund as 'Taxed and/or Untaxed elements'. These amounts, together with the Assessable amount of Non-Superannuation Annuities are entered at labels J and N.
Lump sum in arrears taxable components are detailed on the Payment Summary received from the Superannuation Fund as 'Taxed and/or Untaxed elements'. These amounts are entered at labels Y and Z.
Tax-free components are non-assessable, non-exempt income and are NOT to be included at any item in the return. However, they are included to calculate assessable amount of capped defined benefit income stream at label M.
Use the Australian annuities and superannuation income streams worksheet (asi) to calculate the income amounts to be disclosed at these labels and if the Tax Offset has not been included on the Payment Summary, use the Superannuation income streams to calculate any offset that can be claimed at item T3. Refer to Annuities and superannuation income streams worksheet (asi).
Ensure that you complete the worksheet at item T3 if the taxpayer is entitled to claim any Australian superannuation income stream offset. Refer to Annuity and Super Income Stream Offset (pen).
Alternatively, if the taxpayer received any income from an Australian annuity or superannuation income stream, enter those details at this item.
