Revised Stage 3 tax cuts confirmed

A close up of a messy pile of Australian $100 and $50 notes plus gold coins on a desk next to a calculator.

The revised stage 3 tax cuts have passed Parliament and will come into effect on 1 July 2024.

The redesign broadens the benefits by focusing on individuals with taxable income below $150,000. An additional 2.9 million Australian taxpayers are estimated to take home more in their pay packet from 1 July. You can estimate your tax cut with this calculator.

This is not how the restructure of the personal income tax system was supposed to work, but a sharp escalation in the cost of living has reshaped community sentiment. As the Prime Minister said, “We are focussed on the here and now” and by default, not on long-term structural change.

We recommend you check any salary sacrifice agreements to ensure that your current strategy will still produce the results you are after.
