How to be $60,000 better off utilising July 2024 Tax Cuts

Michael Sauer CFP explains the benefits of saving your tax cuts rather than spending them!

As of 1 July 2024, we are all receiving a tax cut. This means that your employer will be depositing an extra (approximately):


  • $181 per month (if you are on $100,000 p.a.)

  • $310 per month (if you are on $150,000 p.a.)

  • $377 per month (if you are on $200,000 p.a.)


After years of many people feeling financially 'tight' with soaring interest rates and inflation, it can be tempting to spend this extra money on niceties. However, I want you to consider the long term effects of 'spending' this money, rather than 'saving' this money.


For you see, $310 per month may not sound like a lot for someone earning $150,000, however it turns out to be a whopping $49,151 over 10 years when added together and when factoring in the wonders of compounding returns.

If both members of your couple are on $150,000, then this 10 year benefit is almost $100,000! Imagine what this money could do; from paying for children's school fees to retiring a number of years earlier!
