Excess Contributions Tax Refund

For breaches of the concessional contributions cap, the Government announced in the 2011 Federal Budget that where the breach is below $20,000, there will be a one-off option to request a refund of the contributions.  This will only apply to breaches from 1 July 2011.  The excess contribution will instead be taxed at the individual’s marginal rate of tax, rather than 46.5% inside the fund.
