Will I need to pay tax on a scholarship?

Question:

Will I need to pay tax on a scholarship?

Answer:

This can depend on your individual circumstances and the type of scholarship you have been awarded. 

The income from some scholarships may also be taken into account to calculate certain income support or other Commonwealth payments so you are also urged to seek independent advice regarding your particular situation.

You can find more information on scholarships and taxation by going to the Australian Taxation Office website or by calling  the ATO enquiry line on 13 28 61.

Please submit an online enquiry if you have further questions.
