  • Medicare levy calculator

    The Medicare levy calculator helps you estimate your Medicare levy for the past six income years, taking into account any entitlement to a reduction or exemption.

    To learn more about the difference between Medicare levy and the Medicare Levy surcharge, see:

    Information you need

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

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

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

    If you want to calculate your Medicare levy surcharge, you need to use the Income tax estimator.


    All outcomes provided by this calculator are based on the information you provide at the time of calculation. The actual amount will be determined once you have lodged your income tax return.
