Rates and thresholds
2020-21 financial year
There are two payroll tax thresholds and rates for the 2020-21 financial year. Payroll tax is charged according to the table below:
Monthly payroll tax thresholds
The monthly threshold amounts varies according to the number of days in the month and year and whether an employer is a member of a group for payroll tax purposes or not. They are rounded to the nearest whole dollar amount.
Australian group wages
If the Australia-wide wages cannot be obtained on a monthly basis, an estimate based on one twelfth of the previous year’s Australia wide wages can be used for the calculation of the threshold entitlement.
Employers not wishing to claim a threshold amount must pay tax of 6.1 per cent on all Tasmanian taxable wages for the month.
