You have been given a program along with this assignment question as an example of the
programs you can use for purpose of assignments of this unit. The taxMe program mimics
some basic Australian taxation rules by calculating the taxable annual income based on
four input variables including salary, medicareLevy, TBRLevy(Temporary budget repair
levy), and Lilevy (Lowincome levy). The value of medicareLevy, TBRLevy and Lilevy
can be “True” or “False”. The output of the program will be the amount of the payable tax
and the income after tax. It calculates the payable tax using the rules below:
1. If your annual income is less than $18,200, you do not need to pay any tax.
2. If your income is between $18,201 and $37,000, you have to pay 19% for the amount
that exceeds the tax-free threshold, which is $18,200.
3. If your income is between $37,001 and $80,000, you have to pay $3572 plus 32.5%
for the amount that exceeds $37,001.
4. If your income is between $80,001 and $180,000, you have to pay $17,547 plus 37%
for the amount that exceeds $80,001.
5. If your income is more than $180,000, you have to pay $54,547 plus 45% for the
amount that exceeds $180,000.
6. There are levies applicable to each stage of tax, each will make subtle changes to your
payable tax:

medicareLevy will introduce a 2% increase on the tax.
Lilevy will offset the first taxable tier to $20,543 instead of $18,200.
TBRlevy will introduce a further 2% increase, however, it can only be applied to
the top tier of income earners.
