Personal Income Tax Changes

The Government has secured enough support to enable their proposed amendments to the Personal Income Tax Bill to take effect. Under the new Bill the following changes will be made to personal tax rates:

 

 

 

• From 1 July 2018, the threshold for the 32.5 per cent tax rate will increase from $87,000 to $90,000
• From 1 July 2018, a Low and Middle Income Tax Offset, a non-refundable tax offset of up to $530 will be introduced. Australian resident individuals with income not exceeding $125,333 will be entitled to the offset in part or full, depending on their income
• From 1 July 2022, the Low and Middle Income Tax Offset and the Low Income Tax Offset will be replaced by a new low income tax offset, of up to $645. Taxpayers earning not more than $37,000 will be entitled to the full offset , while it will be reduced for income above that amount and taper out at $66,667
• From 1 July 2022, the thresholds for the 32.5 per cent tax rate will increased from $37,000 to $90,000, to $41,000 to $120,000
• From 1 July 2024, the threshold for the 32.5 per cent tax rate will be further increased to $200,000 from $120,000, removing the 37 per cent tax rate. The top marginal rate of 45 cents (excluding the Medicare Levy) will commence at $200,001
