What happens next
We’ll use your return to maintain your running balance for your imputation credit account.
It will be updated with the latest return’s income tax payments, transfers in, income tax disbursements and transfers out.
The running balance determines which income tax disbursement limitation rules will apply.
If you file an imputation return with a credit or nil closing balance we will not post a transaction to your account.
Any imputation liabilities will be managed through your company’s income tax account.
You can also file your IR4J on paper.
