If your partner earns less than $37,000 a year and you make an after-tax contribution into their super account1 you may be eligible for the maximum tax offset of 18%. (the maximum offset of $540 is based on a $3,000 contribution per year). The offset reduces as your partner’s income increases above $37,000, and completely phases out at $40,000.



Even if you're not eligible for a tax offset you can still make a spouse contribution to your spouse's account. Just think how that could help you save for your future together.
