To add insult to injury the ACT Government Utilities Tax Charge on Telstra phone bills also charges GST on the Tax!
State and Territory governments also “steal” from its citizens by applying GST to the stamp duty on insurance premiums.
I am deafened by the silence of the media on this issue. For me it isn’t the cost that angers me, it is the principle. At what point in history did governments come up with the idea of charging a tax on a tax!
