  • Foreign residents Medicare levy exemption

    If you were a foreign resident for tax purposes for:

    • the full year, you can claim a full exemption from the Medicare levy
    • only part of the year, you can still claim full exemption from the Medicare levy for that period if  

    You claim this exemption when you lodge your income tax return. This exemption is known as exemption category 2 on your tax return when you complete the Medicare levy section.
