Medicare Levy

The Medicare levy is for Australia’s public health system called Medicare. The Medicare levy is 2% of your taxable income.

You may get a reduction or exemption from paying the Medicare levy, depending on your and your spouse’s circumstances. You need to consider your eligibility for a reduction or an exemption separately.

The reduction and exemption are not applied to our tax return calculator 2021.

Low and middle income tax offsets

If you are an Australian resident for income tax purposes and you pay tax on your taxable income, you may be eligible for low income tax offset and low and middle income tax offset.

What is a tax offset?

A tax offset means you pay less tax on your taxable income (that is, your total income minus any deductions).

These two tax offsets can only reduce the tax you pay to zero, but any unused offset amount can’t be refunded.
