Parenthood Tax Rebate

In case you are a parent, you can be qualified to get the $5,000 Parenthood Tax Rebate for your first kid, $10,000 for your second child, and $20,000 for each child after that. At the moment of birth or within a year following, the kid must be a citizen of Singapore.

To reduce your individual income tax obligations, you and your spouse may split the Parenthood Tax Rebate for each eligible kid. Until the tax refund is completely used, any unused Parenthood Tax refund may be applied to reduce the amount of income tax you owe in the following years.

PTR Treatment for Different Scenarios

Depending on the child’s order within the family, each child receives a different amount of PTR.

PTR for children given up for adoption: 

  • No PTR on the kid is due to the parents.
  • After the kid is placed for adoption, the parents lose their right to PTR. The balance of the PTR that remains is lost. For example, the parents will no longer be able to claim any unutilized PTR balance from the Year of Assessment 2022 if the kid is placed for adoption in 2021.

If the marriage is dissolved under a court order: 

  • Any credit balance that is left in either of your PTR accounts may be used by you and your ex-spouse to reduce future tax obligations.
  • If one spouse passes away: Any credit balance that is still available in any of your PTR accounts may be used to reduce future tax obligations.
