IT4 Target Foreign Income worksheet (tfi)

For income test purposes, target foreign income is any income earned, derived or received from sources outside Australia, or periodical payments or benefits by the way of gifts or allowances from a source outside Australia. It does not include foreign income that is included in your assessable income or foreign income that you have received in the form of a fringe benefit.

If you have already included an amount of exempt foreign employment income at item 20 label N you will notice that amount has already been transferred to this worksheet to be included as part of target foreign income.
