TFN while on WHV

Hello everyone!

This maybe be a dumb question but I have to ask. Last year I entered Oz on a WHV and got a TFN a few months into being there. I did a small amount of working (made about 300$) and for the rest of the time lived off my savings. I left after 10 months and did not receive any tax info and I didn't contact the tax office before leaving. I also did not close my bank account t before j left. I plan to apply for a PMV later this year and I was wondering if this would have any affect on it, I don't imagine it would considering it is such a small amount of work but just want to be safe.
Thanks!

As you were here for over 6 months, you would be classed as Tax resident, and be eligible for the tax free threshold. Therefore no tax to pay if you earned under the $18,000 threshold.

You should have no problems, and can actually claim back any tax that was deducted at source.

As far as I can tell, there is nothing really wrong to affect a Visa application.

This page tells if you needed to do a tax return or not.

You could still do a "Non-lodgment advice" if needed, online.
