I'm new

I have recently started a new job and feel like I’m paying more tax than I should be. My gross earnings for the fortnight were $2262.00 and I was taxed $812. I do have a HECS debt but I am a bit out of my depth with all this so if someone could provide some insight to me that would be great!

Ask your employer but by the looks of things, it is too high. Did you provide a TFN declaration?

 

You can use the ATO's withholding calculator as proof that the WHT amount is too high (see here).
