Just paid the 4by rego. That's after paying the ute rego and CT rego. There is stamp duty on the insurance for each of them – $60 for the 4by rego alone.
I was under the impression that the introduction of the GST meant no more stamp duty because the money from GST went to the states.
Guess I am just a naive fool to think that that would be true or to imagine that the GST will not be hiked up in time.
Guess also that on this forum this can only be a whinge. I should e-mail my local federal member and ask him except that I know that because I don't contribute millions of dollars to his party all the response I will get is a form letter sent out by his underlings.
That's my whinge for this month then.
Perhaps I'll send that e-mail anyway just to let them know I'm p*ssed off.

Stamp Duty is a State Tax, blame your State Govt, not the Federal Govt. Costello is trying to get Stamp Duties removed by the States with no luck so far.

Even Queensland with our small population and big land mass had a budget surpless announced today of $1.1Bill - down from $3.2Bill last year.

Stamp duty as usual was the big earner.
