      Australian Tax

      just a quick question thats been bothering me,
      How does the tax system work in Australia?
      my understanding (which im sure im wrong) is that the first 18200 i earn is tax free,so that means say i was getting 25dollars a hour, i would be getting that cash in the hand tax free up untill i earn 18200? so if i was doing a 40hour week i would be getting 1000dollars a week cash in the hand for 18weeks? and then i would have to start paying tax or do they some how work out your salary for the year and start taxing you straight away?

      No, it is exactly the same as in the uk, they tax you equally throughout the year, assuming that you will be earning a similar amount, unless you go up into the next tax brackets any week.
      No tax free weeks I'm afraid, but you are more likely to get a tax return (as long as you are a resident for tax purposes).
