• Comprehensive tax calculator

    This calculator will help you work out your tax refund or debt for the income years 2012–13, 2013–14 and 2014–15. It will estimate your tax payable and will also calculate:

    • Medicare levy
    • Medicare levy surcharge
    • Higher Education Loan Program (HELP)/Trade Support Loan (TSL) repayment
    • Student Financial Supplement Scheme (SFSS) repayment
    • any tax offsets that may apply.

    It will take these, along with other tax credits, into account in estimating your tax refund or debt.

    The calculator takes 15 to 25 minutes to complete.

    Information you will need:

    • your taxable income for the 2015 income year (1 July 2014 to 30 June 2015)
    • your residency status for taxation purposes
