Australian citizen " non resident Tax " Australia

Why should one have to pay over 30 % tax in Australia ( income AND land tax ) simply because one does not live there? This tax is immoral!
I can maybe understand that for non-citizens of Australia but otherwise not. The Australia mafia.

You have land there, it's important you pay towards infrastructure & the Police etc. Owning property is always risky as governments can increase taxes without limit & there is nothing you can do.

Re: Australian citizen " non resident Tax " Australia

What Australian tax?

Did you know that Canada’s Yukon Territory has a special tax where ex-residents are required to pay, or not, a 39% tax. Immoral I say, they should be executed, or not.

Income tax and land tax. Each is 30%

Land tax is NOT 30% - you've made this up.

If you don't want to pay tax in Australia, why don't you just sell up and stop earning income there?

Mods, can you delete this thread? It is an absolute waste of time. Someone complains about something only s/he knows about, doesn't provide anymore information.

Trolling ...

Re: Australian citizen " non resident Tax " Australia

Is land tax in Australia the same across all the states and territories of Australia, or set locally?

Sorry I made a mistake about the land tax. Here is the calculator. For an absentee owner .


https://www.e-business.sro.vic.gov.a...ators/land-tax

They changed the law a couple of years ago for non residents. Now they pay crazy amounts. And Its mainly due to all the Chinese investment. They are buying up Australia


But income tax is set at 30% or more for non residents

Your Australian income should affect your Swiss taxes as well.

Re: Australian citizen " non resident Tax " Australia

Well what could they do if I objected to paying this " non resident" Land Tax? I could claim "hardship".

I would elect not to pay. Logical. Or not?

If you have a case - within the relevant legal system - to appeal against the tax, then by all means do so. Perhaps the Australian tax office will reduce your bill. Depending on that legal system, "hardship" (and how it is defined) may supply a valid reason for this.

If you have no such case, or if you lose your appeal, then the tax will most likely continue to be billed to you.

If you don't pay, you will probably get warnings and final warnings, and I suppose penalty fees and/or interest, and so on. At some point, the sum of these will be high enough to make it worthwhile for the tax authority, seeing themselves underpaid and wronged, to take the requisite legal steps against you, to attach your property to offset the damages they claim due to them by you.

Thanks. It would be unlikely that I would have such a case. But worth looking into.
