2012 Tax Changes – Termination Payment
Changes to employee termination payments
There will be a few changes made to employment termination payments next month. From July 1, the offset is limited so it only applies where it takes up the person’s total annual taxable income to no more than $180,000.
Any amount above this will be taxed at marginal rates. Any existing arrangements will remain in place for genuine redundancies, or for compensation due to death or an employment-related dispute.
