Please note: This calculator is an approximation. Do not rely on this calculator!!! I wrote this because the ATO one was offline at the time, and when it did work it took forever to fill out. I just wanted a quick rough estimate. This calculator does not allow for:

  • *Medicare Levy. Calculator above is only accurate if income is over $27,068 and you are single with no dependants and no medicare levy exemptions or reductions. Medicare levy is reduced for many taxpayers, especially pensioners and families.
  • Pensioner Tax Offset
  • Debts (like HECS or HELP loans)
  • Zone or Overseas Rebates
  • Unearned under 18 Income or first tax return
  • Non Residents
  • Small Business Rebate
  • Medicare Levy surcharge (if your income is over $90,000 and no private health)
  • Capital gains, prior year losses, primary production, fuel and film rebates, and so on.
  • Other things I missed 🙂

This does not take into consideration your circumstances and is intended as a general guide only. Please visit the ATO website for more accurate calculators.
