The Australian Annuities and Super Income Streams dialog collects the information required to calculate the offset the taxpayer is entitled to, if any.

This is a transactional dialog used to record more than one entry for details of annuities and superannuation income streams from more than one fund that the taxpayer may receive. A transactional dialog lets you add more than one transaction.

If you enter more than one set of payment details, the sum of the offset calculated integrates to item T2 in the tax return. It's also included in the tax estimate.
