Compare Your Income


I have updated the very popular income comparison calculator.

The previous version of this calculator uses data from Iras 2005/2006 Annual Report.

Now that Iras has released its 2006/2007 Annual Report, it is time that I refresh my little tool.

With this tool, you can see how you stack up against the competition in YA2007. By “competition”, I mean resident taxpayers, i.e. you are comparing yourself with other Singapore residents who pay taxes.

The data that I used are found in Appendix 5 in the Iras report.

Here’s the tool. Just enter your annual income and click the Submit Query button to compare your income with fellow resident taxpayers.

Interestingly, an income of $100k places the taxpayer at the 82.2th percentile this year, whereas the same income places him at the 83.1th percentile. What gives? Are there more people making indescribable amounts of money?

  2. I’m 47, have been working in the same company for the past 28 years. I’m incharge of accounts (manual and computerized), admin, sales, tenants, banking etc…I’m now alone doing the above mentioned works for the 10 years. What is my salary suppose to be?. My boss is not from singapore.

  3. Mrs Roslan, I wish I could help, but I really can’t gauge what your salary is supposed to be.
    In the 28 years, have you tried interviewing for other jobs? That would have given you an idea of what the market is willing to pay for the skills and experience you have.
