The reason is his tax rate and income.

The withholding just covered the true tax liability. The tax would be the 32.5c on the amount over $37000 ($7022.60) plus the $3572 which is $10594. He receives the difference back.

The tax rates are below

0 – $18,200 tax rate is Nil

$18,201 – $37,000 tax is 19c for each $1 over $18,200

$37,001 – $80,000 tax is $3,572 plus 32.5c for each $1 over $37,000

$80,001 – $180,000 tax $17,547 plus 37c for each $1 over $80,000

$180,001 and over $54,547 plus 45c for each $1 over $180,000
