Cuts to health and education budgets have been revealed as part of the state government's efficiency dividend.
The health department will have $11.79 million cut from its budget. Nearly $10 million would be cut from the education budget, and the department of communities, which is responsible for housing and child protection, will lose $3.87 million.
The House of Assembly, Integrity Commission, Legislative Council, Tasmanian Audit Office, and Tourism Tasmania will also face budget cuts.
The state government released the new figures on Wednesday.
As a result, the government expects the efficiency dividend to create savings worth $35 million this year.
Treasurer Peter Gutwein said the cuts are the "sensible savings" to avoid the need for "drastic" action as seen in other states and territories.
"The update identifies that with an additional $15 million in government business returns, the efficiency dividend required of all Tasmanian government departments and agencies has been reduced to just $35 million this year," he said.
"For context, the efficiency dividend now represents approximately 0.5 per cent of expenditure. This is significantly less than efficiencies imposed in other jurisdictions, and equates to 50 cents in every $100 of government expenditure."
Mr Gutwein said surpluses were forecast across the forward estimates.
Opposition spokesman David O'Byrne said the cuts will impact on essential services and frontline jobs will go.
"Today's so-called budget update confirms Will Hodgman and Peter Gutwein will cut the equivalent of almost 1500 surgeries or 164 nurses out of the health system, and that's just this year," he said.
"A $9 million cut from education is the equivalent of 116 teachers gone this year, while Communities Tasmania faces cuts that could mean a reduction in 54 child protection workers."
