Income Tax Calculator
Understanding the amount you pay in income tax is important to your financial planning. Income taxes affect your income, which in turn will affect your budget and anticipated expenses. The amount you pay in income taxes can also affect how you approach borrowing. Furthermore, income tax thresholds change each fiscal year. It's important to understand how the income tax thresholds will affect your weekly income so that you can adequately budget and prepare for your financial future.
The simple income tax calculator on this page can help you determine the total amount you will pay in income taxes, what your net income will be and how much you will pay in income taxes each week. You can also see how the current tax thresholds for fiscal year 2008 - 2009 have changed from fiscal year 2007 - 2008 and determine the weekly difference in your income.
To use the income tax calculator, simply enter the amount of your annual income (in dollars) and click calculate. You will then be able to see the current tax thresholds for fiscal year 2008 - 2009 and the previous tax thresholds for fiscal year 2007 - 2008.
