Net tax thresholds for Australian families
AbstractA net tax threshold (NTT) is the maximum amount of private income a family or person can have before their income tax liability exceeds their government cash benefits entitlement. This study compares NTTs and disposable incomes for different family types for the 1996-97 and 2006-07 financial years and discusses changes to the tax and cash transfer systems that have impacted on the 2006-07 outcomes. Also examined is the distribution of Australian families who are above or below their net tax threshold with analysis by family type, number of children, and State; a comparison is made between 1996-97 and 2005-06.
