• Medicare levy calculator

    The Medicare levy calculator allows you to calculate your Medicare levy for the past three income years, taking into account any entitlement to a reduction or exemption.

    Information you may need

    • your taxable income
    • your spouse's taxable income
    • if you are eligible for an exemption, the number of days.

    This calculator will provide an estimate of your Medicare levy, taking into account any entitlement to a reduction or exemption.

    This tool is unable to calculate your Medicare levy if you:

    • had a spouse and they were eligible for Senior Australian Pensioner Tax Offset
    • received exempt foreign employment income
    • had any taxed element of a superannuation lump sum for which the tax rate was zero.

    This tool is unable to calculate your Medicare levy surcharge. You can use the Income tax estimatorThis link opens in a new window to calculate the surcharge component.

    Note: This calculator will give you an estimate only, based on the information you enter at the time. The actual amount will be determined once you have lodged your income tax return.
