  Your residency status for income tax purposes will determine your tax-free threshold. The standards the ATO uses to determine residency status are not the same as those used by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship.

Generally, the ATO considers you to be an Australian resident for income tax purposes if :
  • you have always lived in Australia or have come to Australia and live here permanently
  • you have been in Australia continuously for six months or more, and for most of that time you worked in the one job and lived at the same place
  • you have been in Australia for more than six months during 2013-14, unless your usual home is overseas and you do not intend to live in Australia.
  • you go overseas temporarily and you do not set up a permanent home in another country, or
  • you are an overseas student who has come to Australia to study and are enrolled in a course that is more than six months long.
