Tax


Lots of people get funny about tax.

There used to be a service station in Brisbane which advertised the price of petrol at a significant discount to their opposition but PLUS government tax, which brought the price back to that of the field. What message do you think he was trying to convey?

Whenever I get an invoice with added GST at 10% I am very pleased that the service is being taxed in Australia and not in those European countries where the add-on is 18%.

I don’t think you’ll get many defenders of Al Capone, either the “businessman” or crime boss. But it is interesting to note that he was jailed for tax offences rather than the many more heinous crimes he committed or organized.
