More COVID-19 business grants are now tax-free

The Federal Government has expanded the list of State and Territory COVID-19 grant programs that may be tax-free to eligible businesses.

A State or Territory Government COVID-19 grant payment will generally be tax-free if:

  1. the payment is received under a grant program that is formally declared to be an eligible program;
  2. the recipient carried on a business and had an aggregated turnover of less than $50 million in the income year the payment was received, or in the previous income year; and
  3. the payment was received in the 2021 or 2022 income year.
