Income details schedule (INCDTLS)

See Granular data – level of detail required on the ATO's website.

In an individual return, most income items now have a new or revised worksheet. You need to use the worksheets to enter income into those items. You can no longer enter the amounts directly into these labels.

These worksheets are integrated into the Income Details schedule (INCDTLS) and lodged with the 2020 individual tax return.

If the taxpayer declares income in any of the items shown below, you must complete the relevant worksheet. When you create any of the worksheets below, the INCDTLS schedule is automatically created.
