FAQs about Australian tax returns in India
Do I need to pay taxes in Australia as a foreigner?
Most Australians who earn an Australian income must file an Aussie tax return even if they live overseas.
According to the ATO, you don’t need to complete a tax return if you are:
- earning less than the tax-free threshold as an Australian tax resident
- a foreign resident and didn’t make any Australian income
- a working holidaymaker earning less than $45,001
In Australia, non-resident tax applies to those who live and work abroad without intending to return to oz.
Non-tax residents only need to lodge tax returns for income earned in Australia. It’s also a little more challenging to prove that you’re a non-resident for tax purposes.
