Someone please correct me if i'm wrong, or if theres some sort of law which means you must pay a certain percentage of tax, but hypothetically speaking if you put practically ALL of your salary into your superannuation, technically you'd be making a [insert tax bracket] gain, on top of what your super makes for that year. Example: Luke Skywalker is on $55,000 salary, and must contribute the compulsary 9% to super, which is $4,950, but instead he contibutes all of his pay apart from $6,000. This way, his taxable income stays within the tax free threshold and he makes $6,000 tax free, and because the rest of his salary was contributed to hs super, the rest of his salary becomes tax free also. Is this right..? And lastly, isn't there some sort of government incentive where for every extra dollar you put into your super, they match it..? I remember seeing some ad on the tv about this. Am I a genius or what..?
