  • From 1 July 2022, the Low and Middle Income Tax Offset and the Low Income Tax Offset will be replaced by a new low income tax offset, of up to $645. Taxpayers earning not more than $37,000 will be entitled to the full offset , while it will be reduced for income above that amount and taper out at $66,667
  • From 1 July 2022, the thresholds for the 32.5 per cent tax rate will increased from $37,000 to $90,000, to $41,000 to $120,000
