10 Apr 1515 On Tax receipts letters

“Why do some taxpayers not receive the Tax receipt letter with their Assessment thanking them for their contribution to the Australian Government?
Husband and Wife assessments arrive today – same income, same refund – Husband is thanked; Wife is not.
I've worked it out: whilst both have the same sort of refund (after PAYG Instalments paid) – the Husband has a tax bill after taking into account his Imputation credits – the wife has a tax refund after taking into account her imputation credits.
But the wife will not be able to do those sorts of calculations and will say – ‘Why didn’t I get one of those??’”
