Hi all, here again i've comeout with another set of questions expecting someone could help me out on this.
I was here on a 475 visa from a HR country that apparantly doesnt not have the reciprocal medicare access here. having been here for last two years I very recently applied and got my PR.
having got only job and worked for the same employer ever since i got in here I really have no much dramas in applying for my tax returns other than this medicare levy thing thats bugging me a bit..
1- having no access to medicare or any such things (luckily i havent fallen sick in last two years, that i ve never been to a doctor or even stepped into any pharmacy for that fact!! i wasnt even bothered to have any private insurance at all) - do i still, need to pay the medicare levy of 1.5 % of my gross pay? or am i eligible for medicare levy exemption?
2- if i am eligible for a medicare levy exemption, can i get back the amount that i've failed to claim during my last financial year's tax returns??
