457, leaving OZ. Taking Super.Tax?

Recommended Posts

Hi, Anyone know about taking Super and tax?


If I have about 15k Super, how much will i be taxed when outside of Oz with visa cancelled? Some say the tax is already going off when my employer pays my Super, so I shouldn't be taxed again.


Is this true?

Tax rates below can be found here: https://www.ato.gov.au/Rates/Key-superannuation-rates-and-thresholds/?page=13#Super_lump_sum_tax_table


If it is just employer contributions that have gone in and you are not a member of a government untaxed super fund your super benefit is likely to be made up of a taxable taxed component therefore in the table in the link referred to as the taxed element of the taxable component.
