Within the next five years, a public school classroom teacher in New South Wales is expected to start on AU$69,603 a year, while a teacher in Victoria is expected to begin their career on $77,223. They will be between $600 and $805 a-year-better off under the Coalition's plan compared to Labor.


The Coalition says teachers, nurses, tradespeople and police officers will be up to $4000-a-year better off by the middle of the next decade, as an escalating tax cut battle takes centre stage in its election campaigning, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.


"They say that these tax cuts will come hell or high water regardless of the state of the economy which means that therefore they will have to cut services if they're going to keep the budget in surplus," Labor's shadow treasurer, Chris Bowen, told ABC radio recently.


In a move designed to personalise tax cuts, Treasurer Josh Frydenberg is expected to release new Treasury figures that illustrate to workers how they stand to benefit. For individuals who will soon enter a higher tax bracket, it’s important to understand new tax obligations, which will be crucial to avoid unexpected tax debt.
