Income tax calculator

Use this simple, accurate tax calculator to work out how much you will be paid.

This calculator now includes tax rates for the proposed 2019-2020 tax year as well as the legislated changes in 2022 and 2024. The most significant change is the extension of a new low and middle income tax offset. This offset will be given as a tax return at the end of the year so it won't effect your pay. This new offset is in addition to the existing low income offset.

Pay As You Go This calculator now conforms to the Australian Tax Office's Pay As You Go (PAYG) schedules. The latest PAYG rates are available from the ATO website in weekly, fortnightly and monthly tax tables.

Why is Annual different to PAYG

The ATO publish tables and formulas to calculate weekly, fortnightly and monthly PAYG income tax instalments that can vary from the annual tax amounts. The reason is to make tax calculations simpler to apply, but it can lead to discrepancies. Differences will always be favour of the ATO, however these will be refunded when the annual year tax return is processed.
