If you make $20,000 a year living in Australia, you will be taxed $342. That means that your net pay will be $19,658 per year, or $1,638 per month. Your average tax rate is 1.7% and your marginal tax rate is 25.7%. This marginal tax rate means that your immediate additional income will be taxed at this rate. For instance, an increase of $100 in your salary will be taxed $25.70, hence, your net pay will only increase by $74.30.
A $1,000 bonus will generate an extra $743 of net incomes. A $5,000 bonus will generate an extra $3,715 of net incomes.
