Stage 3 Tax Cuts – How Will They Affect You?


Understanding Stage 3 Tax Cuts

Understanding the upcoming Stage 3 tax cuts is crucial for Australian taxpayers. Introduced in 2018, these cuts are designed to simplify the tax system and provide relief from bracket creep. Here’s what you need to know about the proposed changes set for the 2024-25 income year        

Original Plan vs. Proposed Changes

Initially, the Stage 3 tax cuts proposed to eliminate the 37% tax rate for those earning above $120,000 and reduce the tax rate to 30% for incomes between $45,000 and $200,000. However, this structure disproportionately benefited higher earners. In response to criticisms and the current economic climate, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese announced a reworked plan that provides more equitable relief, particularly focusing on low and middle-income earners amidst the cost-of-living crisis.                

Impact of Redesigned Tax Cuts

Under the redesigned plan, high-income earners will still see reduced benefits, while the majority of Australians, especially those earning the average wage of $73,000, will receive more significant tax cuts. This adjustment aims to better distribute tax relief, ensuring that it reaches those who need it most. The majority of Australian taxpayers stand to benefit from the redesigned Stage 3 tax cuts, with significant reductions across various income levels. Whether you’re a part-time worker, a renter or someone earning under $45,000, the new plan aims to provide more substantial support.
