The tax amount withheld in your payslip varies depending on your answers to the questions in the TFN Declaration. So, your tax residency, your answer to claiming the tax-free threshold and whether you have one of the following debts - Higher Education Loan Program (HELP), VET Student Loan (VSL), Financial Supplement (FS), Student Start-up Loan (SSL) or Trade Support Loan (TSL) - are all factors that will affect the amount of tax withheld every pay cycle.


If you would like to know the amount of tax that should be withheld in your payslip, refer to this table. However, please note that this amount will be higher if you have one of the debts listed above and you have declared it in your TFN Declaration.
