Tax File Number (TFN) on an Aged Parent Bridging Visa

Recommended Posts

Guest davemgraham

Hi All,

 

My mum is currently in Oz on a bridging visa (Aged Parent).

 

We were told by the ATO she was entitled to a TFN, however upon making an appointment, we were told to go to Immigration to get the VISA in her passport and get a bank statement and then return.....which we did - but they refused to give her a TFN because the VISA states she cannot work.

 

She doesn't want to work, she just doesn't want to get Tax Withheld on any interest in her accounts at 47% !!!

 

Has anyone been through this before?

 

Cheers,

 

Dave
