Your preliminary income assessment applies to the current year. The tax assessment notice is your final tax accounts for the previous year.

  • Your preliminary income assessment determines what you are paid each month.
  • You receive the tax assessment notice when the year has ended. It is ready in March.
  • The tax assessment notice tells you whether you have to pay outstanding tax or are entitled to a tax refund.
  • What you enter in your preliminary income assessment is not automatically included in your tax assessment notice.
