What is income?

Employment Income

In this section you should include all the income you have received from your employer throughout the 2019 financial year in the tax refund calculator. Your group certificate should have all your total employment income. Employers should send you a group certificate by by email or by letter. Otherwise, if your employer has set up STP Single Touch Payroll, you can access your PAYG summary online via the MyGov website which will have your total gross taxable income as well as tax withheld for the year-end. 

Government pensions/allowances

If you received any income from the Australian Government such as Youth Allowance or Parental Leave Pay you should enter this amount for a more accurate result as both payments are not exempt from income tax and therefore should be included apart of your taxable income.

On the other hand, if you received Carer Adjustment payments or Veterans’ Affairs disability pension, these payments are exempt taxable income payments and you should not enter this into the tax calculator when calculating your refund amount. You can find out whether your government payments are taxable or not via your MyGov account which will have your annual statements ready for you to access & will include any tax withheld during the year also which you should enter in the opposing field on the tax calculator page.

To note: Opposed to our online tax calculator page, when you are filling out our online tax form to provide all income you received during the year, even tax-exempt income as per above as we can sort through what is and what isn’t taxable, us humans are one-up on the calculator in this instance!

Dividend income and franking credits

This is pretty straight-forward and includes income such as dividends, interest earned, franking credits and the like.  You can obtain your total annual income earned by logging on to your online account if your provider has this service and if you’ve opted for paperless banking, go you!, or else you should receive a letter in the mail in the coming week or so with your annual statement, otherwise if you can’t wait you can contact your chosen financial institution directly.

All other income

This section is where you should include income from sources such as foreign income, net sole trader income and net rental property income after expenses paid.

What are deductions?


In the deductions section you should include costs incurred which were specifically work-related which include:

  1. motor vehicle expenses
  2. travel expenses
  3. uniform occupation-specific or protective clothing, laundry and dry-cleaning expenses
  4. self-education expenses
  5. other work-related expenses
  6. low-value pool deduction
  7. interest deduction
  8. dividend deductions
  9. gifts and donations
  10. costs of managing tax affairs

As well as other deductions including personal super contributions and income protection insurance premiums in the tax refund calculator. You should also include any current HELP/HECS/SFSS Loan balance as Australian Taxpayers are obligated to make compulsory repayments once taxable income is over $51,957 as per the new 2019 tax threshold rates. Following the information outlined above prior to using our online tax calculator will provide you with the best results at receiving an accurate estimated tax return figure.
