Hello and thank you for allowing me to assist you today.
If you’re Age Pension age (currently age 65) or older, you have more generous tax-free thresholds, known as the Seniors and Pensioners Tax Offset (SAPTO). If you’re single, you can earn up to $32,279 in the 2014/2015 year (or for the 2013/2014 year, or for the 2012/2013 year) in non-super income without paying a cent of tax because of the application of SAPTO and LITO (low income tax offset).
