had a class in tax planning recently and according to sg laws, you are considered a sg residet if you are physically present in sg, or has employment in sg, for 183 days or more in a calendar year. i guess similar laws apply to aus? since u’re a full-time student there, u’re considered a resident?

Yeah it’s the same here too.. I was dumb and assumed it meant “permanent resident” and thought that as an intl student with an intl passport, I didn’t quality as a “resident”. oh well, I’ll write to them and get them to fix it. Thank goodness I don’t have to pay! 🙂

i attended an hour-long tax file number talk when i got to perth before i could apply for my tfn. now i know why they stressed the importance of ticking off ‘resident’…:)
