Posted on September 30, 2019

ICPA (Aust) supports the proposed expansion of the Family Tax Benefit Part B to families whose student is 16-19 years of age and receiving ABSTUDY as it means an improved situation for these rural and remote students to address the anomaly in the current legislation which has meant this has not been the case.
