    First, you have to check if you are a resident or non-resident for tax-purposes:

    Then you can see how much tax you pay. It also depends on your income:

    Generally, people on a 457 are tax resident in Australia and will pay normal tax.+  the medicare levy (2%).  Residency for tax and immigration are two very different things.

    it depends on your income but the scale is as follows

     

    2016-2017

                   -        18,200   0%

         18,201  -   37,000    19%

         37,001  -   87,000    33%

         87,001  - 121,680    37%

       121,681  - 180,001    45%

    Medicare levy               2.0%

    Non residents pay tax at 32.5% on Australian source income such as rental income from let property in Australia.

    However, as others have said, it is probable that you are a resident of Australia for tax purposes, but can be taxed under the special provisions that apply to temporary visa holders.

    If you are buying a property in Australia watch for the change announced in the 2017 Federal Budget in respect of the CGT main residence exemption, and its withdrawal where non and temporary residents own a home in Australia.

    Best regards.

    Hey Alan,

    Are they going to start charging CGT on the PPR for temp residents?  They really are screwing 457 holders, first school fees, now this.

    "The Government is taking prudent steps to ensure incentives are better aligned with improving housing outcomes, including:

    ...

    • strengthening the capital gains tax (CGT) rules to reduce the risk that foreign investors avoid paying CGT in Australia, including by no longer allowing foreign or temporary tax residents to claim the main residence CGT exemption, and by expanding the scope of the CGT withholding system for foreign residents;

    ..."

    Best regards.
