Making a Division 293 election

The ATO is reminding taxpayers and tax practitioners that the process to release money from super fund accounts to pay additional tax on concessional contributions (i.e., under Division 293 of the ITAA 1997) changed on 1 July 2018.

Since then, practitioners or their clients must send the Division 293 election form to the ATO, not to the super fund (if the election form is sent to the fund it will be rejected and returned to the sender).

When the ATO receives the election form, they will have the client’s nominated super fund release and send the money to the ATO, which will then be offset against any outstanding tax or other Australian Government debts before they refund any remaining balance to the client.
