Tax on Resident Minors - Overview
Minimize

The following rates apply if a minor (a person under age 18 on 30 June):

> is a resident of Australia for the whole financial year, and

> is not an excepted person (1), or

> has no excepted income (2).           

The rates below do not include the Medicare Levy or the Flood Levy.

(1) Ordinary ‘adult’ rates of tax apply to all the income of an excepted person. See below for who is an excepted person.

(2) Excepted net income - that is, excepted income minus deductions relating to that income - is taxed at ordinary ‘adult’ rates.  All other income of a minor who is not an excepted person will be taxed at the higher rates shown below. See below for what is excepted income.
