    End of attention

    To claim the Medicare levy adjustment (available in certain situations), your employee must lodge a Medicare levy variation declaration with their Tax file number declaration.

    Some employees may be liable for an increased rate of the Medicare levy surcharge as a result of the income for surcharge purposes tests. They can lodge a Medicare levy variation declaration, requesting you to increase the amount to be withheld from their payments.

    For instructions on how to work out the Medicare levy adjustment refer to Medicare levy adjustment monthly tax table.
