Division 6AA Income Tax Payable 1, of the entire amount of excess over of the entire amount 1 The Medicare Levy is not payable by non-residents. 2 These rates do not include the temporary Flood Levy which may also apply see below. Flood levy For the 2011/12 income year only, a levy (tax) is imposed on taxpayers to assist reconstruction work from the floods and Cyclone Yasi (i.e., the flood levy ). The flood levy generally operates as follows: no levy is payable where the taxpayer has a taxable income of 50,000 or less, or where an exemption applies (broadly where the taxpayer has been affected by a natural disaster); individuals, both residents and non-residents, with a taxable income between 50,001 and 100,000 in the 2012 income year will pay a 0.5 levy on that part of taxable income above 50,000; and individuals, both residents and non-residents, with a taxable income of 100,001 or more in the 2012 income year will pay a 0.5 levy on that part of their taxable income between 50,001 and 100,000 and a 1 levy on that part of their taxable income above 100,000. The flood levy is automatically included in the tax taken out of salary and wages by an employer (for salary and wage earners). If the taxpayer pays instalments towards their expected tax liability, the flood levy will automatically be included in the instalment rate. For example, this includes self-employed persons and investors, or self-funded retirees. Note that the flood levy cannot be reduced by non-refundable tax offsets. Pro-d Tax-Free Threshold Non-residents The tax-free threshold that applies to residents (currently, 6,000 per annum) is pro-rated in an income year in which a taxpayer was not a resident for tax purposes for the entire year. Specifically, the 500 threshold is allowed for each month that the taxpayer was a resident (including the month in which the taxpayer became/ceased to be a resident). Genuine Redundancy Payments The tax-free amount of a genuine redundancy payment in 2011/12 is 8,435 plus 4,218 for each completed year of service.

3 S.99 Assessment Resident Deceased Estate The following rates apply where a trustee is assessed under S.99 ITAA 1936 in respect of a resident deceased estate. Where the date of death is less than 3 years before the end of the income year, the trustee is assessed as a resident individual. 1, 2 Less than 3 years since death 0 6,000 Nil 6,001 37, of excess over 6,000 37,001 80,000 4, of excess over 37,000 80, ,000 17, of excess over 80, , , of excess over 180,000 3 years or more since death Nil of excess over , of excess over ,001 80,000 5, of excess over 37,000 80, ,000 18, of excess over 80, , , of excess over 180,000 1 Medicare Levy does not apply to S.99 assessments of deceased estate trustees. 2 These rates do not include the temporary Flood Levy which may also apply. S.99A Assessment No Beneficiary Presently Entitled The following rate applies where there is no beneficiary entitled to the net income of a resident trust: of the entire amount 1 1 Medicare Levy is not included but does apply (except in relation to deceased estates).

4 General Medicare Levy 2011/12 Taxpayer Individual (resident) 1.5 of taxable income Low-income Thresholds Individuals The 2011/12 Medicare Levy low-income thresholds for individuals are as follows: Threshold Phase-in Limit 2 Single Taxpayer Amount 1 Not eligible for Senior Australians Tax Offset or Pensioner Tax Offset 1.5 at or Above 3 19,404 19,405 22,828 22,829 Eligible for Senior Australians Tax Offset 30,685 30,686 36,100 36,101 Eligible for Pensioner Tax Offset only 30,451 30,452 35,824 35,825 1 No Medicare Levy is payable on taxable income levels at or below the Threshold Amount. 2 Where taxable income falls within the Phase-in Limit, Medicare Levy is payable at 10 of the excess over the Threshold Amount. 3 The Medicare Levy of 1.5 applies to the entire amount of taxable income. Family Thresholds A taxpayer who: has a spouse (married or de facto) on the last day of the income year; has not remarried after their spouse died during the income year; or who is eligible for the notionally retained sole parent rebate, the housekeeper or the childhousekeeper rebates (or would be entitled if they did not qualify for the Family Tax Benefit Part B); may be eligible to pay no (or a reduced) Medicare Levy if their family income is within the thresholds set out below for the relevant income year. Family Thresholds 2011/12 The 2011/12 Medicare Levy thresholds for families are as follows: No. of Dependent Children/Students Family Income 1 Threshold Taxpayer Not Eligible for Senior Australians Tax Offset Reduced Levy at or above ,743 32,744 38,521 38, ,750 35,751 42,058 42, ,757 38,758 45,596 45, ,764 41,765 49,134 49, ,771 44,772 52,671 52, ,778 47,779 56,209 56, ,785 50,786 59,747 59,748 Each extra child 3,007 3,538

5 Taxpayer Eligible for Senior Australians Tax Offset 0 44,500 44,501 52,352 52, ,507 47,508 55,890 55, ,514 50,515 59,428 59, ,521 53,522 62,965 62, ,528 56,529 66,503 66, ,535 59,536 70,041 70, ,542 62,543 73,578 73,579 Each extra child 3,007 3,538 1 Family Income is the combined income of a taxpayer and their spouse. If the taxpayer does not have a spouse, Family Income is the taxpayer s taxable income only. No Medicare Levy is payable on taxable income levels at or below the Family Income Threshold. 2 The Medicare Levy shades in at 10 for every dollar where Family Income exceeds the Family Income Threshold. There is no 'Phase-in Limit' stated for families as there is with individuals since the figures change with the number of dependants. Instead, a formula is applied to reduce the levy payable by families to 10 of the amount by which Family Income exceeds the Family Income Threshold. The reduction is calculated as: A (0.085 x (B C)) where A is 1.5 of the relevant Family Income Threshold, B is the Family Income and C is the Family Income Threshold. Where the levy is also payable by the spouse, the reduction is shared according to the proportion that the taxable income of each bears to the total Family Income. 3 The levy payable by the relevant taxpayer is 1.5 of their entire taxable income. Medicare Levy Surcharge Thresholds A surcharge of 1 is imposed on top of the 1.5 Medicare Levy where a taxpayer, their spouse and dependants do not have an appropriate level of private patient hospital cover and the taxpayer's 'income for surcharge purposes' 1 exceeds the relevant threshold from the following table 2 : No. of Dependent Children or Students Singles 3 Family , , , , , , , , , , , ,000 Each extra child 1,500 1,500 1 A taxpayer's 'income for surcharge purposes' is the sum of their: taxable income (including the net amount on which family trust distribution tax has been paid); reportable fringe benefits total; reportable superannuation contributions; exempt foreign employment income; total investment loss (including net financial investment losses and net rental losses), Less any taxed component of a superannuation lump sum received which does not exceed the taxpayer's low rate cap. Note however, the 1 Medicare Levy surcharge is only payable on a taxpayer's taxable income and reportable fringe benefits total. 2 A policy taken out where the annual excess is greater than 500 for singles (1,000 for couples) is deemed not to provide private patient hospital cover. 3 Single taxpayers with dependants apply the 'Family' thresholds. However, the dependants' 'income for surcharge purposes' is ignored. 4 Where the taxpayer is married, both the taxpayer's and spouse's 'income for surcharge purposes' are taken into account when determining if the 'Family' threshold is exceeded. To the extent either spouse is not liable for the 1.5 Medicare Levy due to deriving insufficient income, they are also not liable to the 1 Medicare Levy surcharge.

6 HELP Repayment Thresholds 2011/12 The Higher Education Loan Programme (HELP) offers Commonwealth loans to eligible students to assist them with paying their higher education fees and to study overseas. A HELP debt is repaid through the taxation system on a taxpayer's 'repayment income'. Repayment income is the sum of the taxpayer's: taxable income; total net investment loss; reportable fringe benefits; exempt foreign employment income; and reportable superannuation contributions. HELP Repayment Thresholds (including accumulated HECS debt) of Repayment HELP Repayment Income Nil 0 47, ,196 52, ,573 57, ,948 60, ,994 65, ,564 71, ,007 74, ,744 82, ,254 87, ,650+ Company s of Tax 2011/12 General Company Tax 1 Description of Taxpayer Private companies (except life insurance companies RSAs + PDFs) 30 Public companies (except life insurance companies RSAs + PDFs) 30 Corporate Unit Trusts 30 Corporate Limited Partnerships 30 Public Trading Trusts 30 Strata Title Bodies Corporate 30 1 In the 2012/13 Federal Budget, the Government announced that the company tax rate will not be reduced to 29 (as was announced in the 2011/12 Federal Budget).
