Should you claim a tax offset?

Last updated 31 July 2022

Check if you are entitled to a tax offset and whether you need to calculate or claim one.

When you don't need to calculate tax offsets

If you are not entitled to claim any of these tax offsets, or you want to claim your entitlement as a lump sum at the end of the financial year, you do not need to calculate your tax offset.

Foreign residents

If you are not a resident of Australia for tax purposes, you are not entitled to claim tax offsets to reduce withholding.

Rates may change

The income thresholds (based on income tests) and tax offset rates stated are for the financial year ending 30 June 2023. These amounts are subject to change each year.
