medicare-levy-income-thresholdsMedicare Levy low income thresholds for 2012-13 were initially set as part of the package of family assistance measures associated with the introduction of the carbon tax.

The thresholds indexed annually.

Basic rules:

  • Incomes below the thresholds are free of the Medicare Levy.
  • Incomes over the threshold pay a levy of 10% of the excess, until the amount reaches the normal rate of 1.5% of income
  • For families, the lower threshold is increased by the amount of $3094 per dependent child (up from $3,007 in the previous year).
