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 30 June 2003 there were 145.4 persons receiving the Family Tax Benefit per 1,000 persons in the local government area of Brighton, the highest rate in Tasmania. Hobart had the lowest rate with 65.2 recipients per 1,000 persons.
