What is the Medicare Levy in Australia?

The Medicare levy in Australia is an amount you pay in addition to the tax you pay on your taxable income.

The Medicare levy helps fund some of the costs of Australia’s public health system known as Medicare. The Medicare levy is 2% of your taxable income.

You may get a reduction or exemption from paying the Medicare levy, depending on you and your spouse’s income and circumstances. You need to consider your eligibility for a reduction or an exemption separately.
