This calculator will show you how much tax you need to pay based on your annual income. From this, you can then figure out how much tax you should get back in your tax return, or how much you owe the Australian Tax Office (ATO).
Understanding how much you earn helps you understand how much tax you owe. Employed individuals are deducted with tax by their employers and are paid to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) on your behalf.
Entrepreneurs and business owners calculate their income tax, or through an accountant and submit it individually to the ATO, together with the tax payment.
The amount of tax you pay for depends on the marginal tax rates of the fiscal year, also known as tax brackets.
Each year, tax brackets are released in Australia to determine how much tax you are liable to the government.
