Student visa tax rate

Recommended Posts

The tax rates for 2023/24 are here:

Tax rates – Australian resident | Australian Taxation Office (ato.gov.au)

There is an annual tax free threshold of $18,000 but the tax rates above do not include the Medicare levy of 2%.  Employers generally withhold an amount from pay-as-you-go wages which includes the Medicare levy and an adjustment - refund or extra payment - will be  made once her  tax return has been assessed by the Australian Tax Office at the end of the financial year.

There is no "Student visa tax rate". The only visa with a separate tax rate is the Working Holiday Visa, students pay the same tax rates and get the same allowances as everyone else. The annual tax-free threshold is $18,200 ($350 per week), but that is reduced if you are not in Australia for the full tax year (but you still get about 60% of it even if you are only in the country for a month). There's also a low-income tax offset which means you don't pay any tax if your income is below $21,884 in a full year (you'll still get tax withheld if you're weekly paid and you earn more than $350 in any week, but you'll get the tax back at the end of the year).
