How Super is Taxed

Usually, super savings are taxed at three key points: when it goes into a super fund (through contributions); while it is in the fund (your investment earnings); and when you make a withdrawal (your super benefits). Super is generally subject to different tax rules to make it an attractive investment option for your retirement savings.
