    Payroll Tax Diminishing Threshold

    From 1 July 2015, the tax-free threshold gradually phases out for employers or groups of employers with annual taxable wages in Australia between $800,000 and $7.5m.  Employers with annual Australia-wide taxable wages of $7.5m or more will pay payroll tax on their entire taxable wages.

    For more information, please see the Diminishing Threshold page.


    State Revenue’s mission is 'To administer revenue laws and grant and subsidy schemes in a fair and efficient manner for the community'.

    State Revenue began as the State Taxation Department in 1970 and was amalgamated with Treasury in 2001. On 1 July 2011, State Revenue became part of the new Department of Finance. As an office dedicated to the administration of revenue, grant and subsidy schemes, not all State Revenue clients are taxpayers.
