Disclaimers and assumptions

  • The rates are for Australian residents.
  • Your marginal tax rate does not include the Medicare levy, which is calculated separately.
  • The Medicare levy is calculated as 2% of taxable income for most taxpayers. The Medicare levy in this calculator is based on individual rates and does not take into account family income or dependent children.
  • The calculations do not include the Medicare Levy Surcharge (1%-1.5%), an additional levy on individuals and families with higher incomes who do not have private health insurance.
  • These calculations do not take into account any tax rebates or tax offsets you may be entitled to.
  • For the 2016-17 financial year, the marginal tax rate for incomes over $180,000 includes the Temporary Budget Repair Levy of 2%.
  • In most cases, your employer will deduct the income tax from your wages and pay it to the ATO.
