Personal Income Tax Rates - One Year Flood Levy

PAYG rates after 1st July 2011 will reflect the 2011 flood levy.


This flood levy will apply to taxpayers with a taxable income of $50,000 and above.

The flood levy is expected to raise $1.8 billion to assist with the reconstruction in Queensland and Victoria.

The levy will apply for the 2011-2012 year as follows:-

  • Individuals with a taxable income between $50,000 and $100,000 will pay a 0.5% levy on that part of taxable income above $50,000;

  • Those with a taxable income of $100,000 or more will pay $250 plus 1% levy on that part above $100,000

Individuals who were affected by a natural disaster during the 2010-2011 year and received an Australian Government Disaster Recovery Payment are exempt from the flood levy.

The comparative effective tax rates for those subject to the levy are as follows:
