• Medicare levy adjustment

    To claim the Medicare levy adjustment available to some low income earners with dependants, 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 Medicare levy or the Medicare levy surcharge as a result of new income tests. They can lodge a Medicare levy variation declaration, requesting you to increase the amount to be withheld from their payments.
