If you make $68,500 a year living in Australia, you will be taxed $14,100. That means that your net pay will be $54,401 per year, or $4,533 per month. Your average tax rate is 20.6% and your marginal tax rate is 34.5%. 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 $34.50, hence, your net pay will only increase by $65.50.
A $1,000 bonus will generate an extra $655 of net incomes. A $5,000 bonus will generate an extra $3,275 of net incomes.
