    Hi anon,

    For Year of Assessment 2020, the assessment is for income earned from 1 Jan 2019 to 31 Dec 2019.

    Thus if you topped up in Jan 2020, you will have to wait till around Mar 2021 to see it reflected when you are filing your taxes/reliefs.

    CPF board will automatically send the information to IRAS.​​​

    Yes it should be reflected

    Check that you don't exceed the cap of 80k in income relief

    The relief will be towards 2020’s taxable income since it was topped up in Jan 2020. Which is assessed in 2021.
