    If a minor turns 18 in the financial year how is the calculation performed when a trust gives money to the person.
    eg 18,000 dollars is given to person 1 day after their 18th birthday of may 30.

    If this is the only income ,
    Is the tax nil or is there a pro rata calculation for the year, at children's rates.



    My reading from the ATO website would result in zero tax paid if this was the only income,but I am not completely sure even though it seems straight forward

    eg
    Resident tax rates for minors on eligible income 2014-15
    Eligible income
    Resident tax rate
    $0 to $416 Nil
    $417 to $1,307 66% of excess over $416 (1)
    Over $1,307 47% of the entire amount of eligible income

    Thanks in advance

    if the child was 18 on 30 June 2015 they would be taxed at normal marginal tax rates.
