      Hi Nikesh,

      Thanks for getting in touch with finder.

      I understand that tax can be very daunting and complicated at times. It is good that you are gathering as much information as possible regarding this topic.

      If you need a work car, you might want to read this guide. It will allow you to know how you can reduce your tax when buying a car for work.

      Generally, the process is that you first buy the car and then claim it later. However, you need the necessary documents when making a claim and a receipt is possibly part of these documents.

      Moreover, I strongly recommend that you directly get in touch with a tax expert who can take a look at your situation completely and provide a more personalised answer.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Hi Varun,

      Thanks for reaching out.

      You will find this information on the payment summaries provided by your employers. If you don’t have these payment summaries, you may request your employer for a copy. Alternatively, you may request a letter from your employer or payer stating details of your income and the amount of tax withheld. If these options are unlikely, you’d best contact ATO or visit their website for assistance.

      Kind regards,

      Hi Luke,

      Thanks for your question.

      Using our tax calculator on this page, you’ll have an estimated tax of $ 5,847.00. Please do note that certain types of expenses are not included in the computation.

      Your tax refund will be the difference between how much you owe to the ATO and how much tax you have already paid.

      I hope this helps.

    I make around 60k in this year with the taxes. If I have been paying taxes in my every pay check, how much do I still gonna have to pay in taxes? Please explain me

      Hi Jakie,

      Thanks for your question.

      To calculate the tax you are liable to pay, you first need to check how much tax you have paid across the financial year. You can usually find this information on your pay slip. Next, you can check the tax rates based on your annual income. You can find this information on the tax rate table for the relevant financial year on this page. Once you calculate how much you’re liable to pay, you subtract the amount of tax you have already paid. The difference is the amount that you either owe the ATO or the ATO should refund to you.

      For further details, please take a look at our tax guide or speak to an online tax agent.

    Just wondering if anyone can help me. I earn roughly $55k gross on TFN and possibly have $4k of ABN work. How much tax would I pay on the ABN work?

    Thank you very much for your time!

      Hi Jesse,

      Thanks for your question.

      A sole trader earning approximately $10,722 in income could pay $10,722 in income tax. However, this is a general calculation and doesn’t take into account any deductions or offsets.

      If you would like to discuss your personal situation, please enquire with a OTA tax agent directly.
