As Benjamin Franklin, once said, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes. Fair point, Mr. Franklin, but does that include the Tax Man taxing my Friday afternoon bevy in the sun? That’s practically unAustralian! (Not that you’d understand Benji.)
Let me explain. Well, I can’t and that’s the point. The Australian tax system is so bloody complicated, you can’t decipher it. Can you believe there are 14 (14!) different tax rates across two tax systems, depending on the type of drink (Something with a novelty umbrella please!), the size (Let’s assume it’s a large for the sake of this example. Cough!), and how much alcohol is in it. Hint: A lot!
NOW THIS MIGHT SOUND LIKE A SILLY QUESTION, BUT ISN’T ALCOHOL, JUST, ALCOHOL?
Here’s the thing: regardless of what your tipple of choice is, it’s outrageous that 70% of the cost of a bottle of spirits goes to Mr. Tax Man. So what are we going to do about it? Well, you need to head to Fix My Tax and join the campaign for a simpler, fairer tax system and send a message to Canberra.
And of course, you don’t just get to stick it to the Tax Man, you also get the chance to win one of three all-expenses paid prizes including VIP access to the V8 Supercars in Sydney plus a V8 hot lap, the ultimate Tasmanian whisky experience or a private tour and blending session at the Bundaberg Rum Distillery in Queensland.
