It takes just a few minutes online, with live online support to help boost your refund.
Are you a temporary or part-year resident in Australia, or are you on a visa?
The calculator above is for people who are Australian residents for tax purposes. Which means, citizens or permanent residents who lived in Australia for the full tax year (excluding holiday travel etc).
If you are on a working holiday, have a visa, are working overseas or any other non-permanent arrangement, do not rely on the calculator above (nor any other simple online calculator), because it can’t make adjustments for your situation. It’s best to do your tax return via the “get started” button. Inside your Etax return, you can add your visa details and dates, and Etax will correctly calculate an accurate tax refund estimate.
Should I find a tax refund calculator that gives the biggest refund estimate?
The tax return calculator above uses the latest logic and tax rates from the ATO. It’s updated whenever the ATO makes tax system changes (usually in May and June of each year).
Every online tax calculator gives an approximate or ‘ballpark’ refund estimate. Many calculators, including ones provided by the ATO, can be inaccurate. They don’t properly account for the Medicare levy and other items that affect your tax refund. That means, the calculators might give you an estimate that’s higher than the refund you’ll actually receive when you lodge your tax return.
This tax calculator is made to save you time and give you a basic tax refund estimate. However, because it only contains eight items, it’s just a rough estimate. We always recommend checking the tax calculator inside the Etax tax return which is extremely accurate!
