  • Tax tables

    You can also use the PAYG withholding tax tables to calculate the amount that should be withheld from your pay. Each table includes instructions, which you must follow carefully to calculate the correct amount of tax.

    Which table or tables you will need depends on:

    • whether you are a resident or foreign resident for tax purposes (if you are unsure, refer to Work out your residency status for tax purposes)
    • whether you are employed in a specific industry
    • whether you are receiving certain types of payments to which concessional rates of tax are applied
    • how often you are paid
    • whether you have a HELP, VSL, SSL, ABSTUDY SSL, TSL or Financial Supplement debt
    • whether you are entitled to a reduction in the rate of Medicare levy.
