    When your payee is entitled to a Medicare levy adjustment

    Your payee is entitled to an adjustment if they meet all of the following requirements:

    • they have provided you with a Medicare levy variation declaration in which they  
      • claimed dependants
      • answered yes to questions 5, 7, 10 and 12
       
    • they have weekly earnings of $739 or more, but less than the corresponding amount in column A of Table 1 – for example, a payee who claims two dependent children must have weekly earnings of less than $1,094 to be entitled to a Medicare levy adjustment.

    If your payee claims more than 10 children, the column A amount is $1,774 plus $85 for each child claimed in excess of 10.

    Column B shows the values used in calculating adjustments for payees with more than five dependent children. If your payee claims more than 10 dependent children, the column B amount is $1,419.31 plus $67.94 for each child in excess of 10.
