      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.

      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.
