The answers provided are right. When you fill out the tax declaration form don't tick the tax free threshold box.
To work out the amount you can use this calculator - https://www.ato.gov.au/Calculators-and-tools/Host/?anchor=TWC&anchor=TWC#TWC/questions
When you lodge a tax return for that financial year the ATO will look at what you've earned overall and calculate how much you should have paid and refund any excess you've paid. If you claim the tax free threshold on multiple jobs you will usually end up with a tax bill however if you only do this on one job then generally you shound end up with a small refund (depending on your other tax affairs).
This is my personal view; I’m an ATO employee who chooses to help out here in my own time.
Thanks for your reply. Sure, thing. I work part-time in my 2nd job at Shell petrol station. I make a consistent extra $400 per week gross. So what would be the tax on this? Thanks for your help.
I think the article you created needs to be broadened because it does not cover the extra tax on second/third jobs for all taxpayers. Have a look at this post https://community.ato.gov.au/t5/General-tax-questions/Tax-rate-on-second-job-is-50/td-p/1768 and the answer by kjw.
Maybe an additional article or expand down further down in the article. I know that the aim would be to make it easy to read and understand and it can be complex.
