I’m single and earning around $30,000 a year. How will the carbon price affect me?
Singles on low and middle incomes will get tax cuts to help them with the expected increase in living costs. Some low-income households might not receive enough assistance through tax cuts or Government payments to offset their average expected cost impact under a carbon price. These households will be able to apply for an annual, tax-exempt Low Income Supplement of $300. For more information see Household Assistance — Supporting low income households.
