This may sound to be a silly question, but appreciate your views on this. Thanks. I have a cash management account which pays monthly interest, payable the 1st day of the new month. For example, the statement shows that I received $105.25 as interest to 30jun06, but the date that amount credited to the account was 01jul06. So, should I declare $105.25 as income for tax year ended 30jun06 or for the tax year ended 30jun07? I have a normal savings account with another institution which pays monthly interest, but payable on the last day of that month. For example, the statement shows that I received $21.49 as interest for the month of June 2006 and the date that amount credited to the account was 30jun06. So, I declare $21.49 as income for tax year ended 30jun06.
