More money in the pocket

The Government proposed a seven-year personal tax cut package that, if legislated, will leave millions of Australians with more money in their pocket.

Tax rebate for low and middle income earners

From 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2022, low and middle income earners will receive a tax rebate of up to $530. This is in addition to the existing Low Income Tax Offset (LITO).

When the rebate ceases on 30 June 2022, the existing LITO will be increased from a maximum of $445 to a maximum of $645, depending on your income.

Changes to personal income tax brackets

From 1 July 2018 the Government plans to increase the income levels to which the taxation rates apply, which will reduce the overall tax on personal income.

These changes are incremental and will be implemented progressively over a 7 year timeframe.
