How do the new tax rates affect me?

Designed to provide bigger tax cuts for middle Australia to help with cost-of-living pressures, tax rates will be changing From 1 July 2024.


Amongst other changes, it also appears that at this stage the tax free threshold has remained the same at $18,200, the medicare levy low income threshold will increase (which means the lower income earner can earn a little bit more and still be exempt from the medicare levy) and Employer Superannuation Contributions (SGC) will increase from 11% to 11.5%.


Tax Rates summarised are as follows :


  • Reduce the 19 per cent tax rate to 16 per cent

  • Reduce the 32.5 per cent tax rate to 30 per cent

  • Increase the threshold above which the 37 per cent tax rate applies from $120,001 to $135,000

  • Increase the threshold above which the 45 per cent tax rate applies from $180,001 to $190,000.
