Family tax benefit is split into two payments:

  • Part A is designed to help parents or guardians of children with the cost of raising those children
  • Part B provides extra assistance to single income families, including sole parents, and especially families with a child under 5 years of age.

At 1 June 2001 there were 268.6 Family Tax Benefit recipients per 1,000 persons in the local government area of Brighton, the highest rate in Tasmania. Hobart had the lowest rate with 110.6 recipients per 1,000 persons.
