Date of effect: 1 July 2021

As announced in the last Federal Budget, individuals with a taxable income of up to $126,000 will receive a tax offset in 2020–21 and 2021–22.

This offset has been extended for another year, until 30 June 2023.

The amount of the offset will vary according to your income, as follows:

$37,000 or less$255
$37,001 to $48,000$255 plus 7.5 cents for each dollar above $37,000 (maximum of $1,080)
$48,001 to $90,000$1,080
$90,001 to $126,000 $1,080 less 3 cents for each dollar above $90,000

The offset will be applied automatically when your tax return is submitted. Depending on your circumstances, you may get a tax refund.
