Keep in mind: You can't avoid taxes by reinvesting your dividends. Dividends are taxable income whether they're received into your account or invested back into the company.
You need to declare all your dividend income on your tax return, even if you use your dividend to purchase more shares – for example, through a dividend reinvestment plan. A dividend is assessable income in the year it was paid or credited to you.

When you receive a fully franked dividend, you get a credit for the 30% company tax already paid. This credit can reduce the tax you have to pay on your dividend income by bringing it in line with your personal tax rate. You can claim a tax refund if your personal tax rate is less than 30%.
The Advantages of Franked Dividends
Fully franked dividends mean the company has already paid tax on the money at the company tax rate of 30%. So that the money isn't being taxed by the ATO twice, you'll receive a franking credit for the tax already paid on the dividend by the company.
Franked dividends can be valuable to retirees because retirees typically have a low level of income and a correspondingly low marginal tax rate as a result. In a scenario where a retiree has a level of income below $18,200, instead of reducing tax payable the excess franking credits are returned as a tax refund.
