    Default Tax Help

    Hi

    I have answered my own question !!!

    FAMILY ASSISTANCE

    Family Assistance is financial help for low- to middle-income families with children who are 18 years or younger who are living at home and are not financially independent. It is not a benefit but recognition that not everyone can comfortably afford all the costs of bringing up a family.

    To be able to receive Family Assistance you must either:

    be a New Zealand resident and have been in New Zealand continuously for at least 12 months at any time. You need to be a tax resident and be resident in New Zealand when you apply for your payments
    be caring for a child who is both resident and living in New Zealand

    If you and your children are in New Zealand unlawfully or hold only a temporary permit or visa, then for Family Assistance purposes, you are not considered a New Zealand resident.


    If you recently arrived in New Zealand and meet the residence conditions, you will need to attach a copy of your residence permit to your application for Family Assistance.


    How much you can get depends on:

    how many children 18 years or younger you have living with you
    how much you and your partner earn (your total family income)
    where you get your income from


    Inland Revenue pays Family Assistance to families whose main income is from working. It can be paid either fortnightly or as a lump sum after the end of the tax year (31 March).


    If your only income is from an income-tested benefit, Work and Income pay any entitlement to you as part of your benefit.


    Regards
