Given that Australia has a progressive tax system where higher income earners pay a greater percentage of income in tax it is difficult to argue that these people pay even higher proportion of income through taxation. Punitive rates of taxation are a disincentive to earn more. That is why some income earners choose part-time hours over full-time. It would be better to expand the coverage of GST to capture more expen...

As others have stated, rich is a relative term. As soon as somebody comes up with a tax system that everyone is happy with, another person will shoot holes in it. My personal tax 'grudge' are people who are share farmers claiming to be primary producers. I know people like this, the farmer does ALL the work, they contribute cash for seed, etc, but they claim everything...

Define “rich”. “Rich” is a relative term that has no meaning except in the perception of the person making the judgment.

One may have the means for expensive chattels and holidays while the other struggles to provide for a basic existence.

You need to define 'Rich'. Many high income earners are 'Rich' in my eye and already pay more tax than most. In addition they also pay a higher rate of tax as mentioned by Toni. Is that fair? I agree with the companies comments below.
YES

As others have said, close all of the loopholes used by anyone to avoid paying their fair share, also ensure that multinational companies pay full tax on all profits generated from doing business in Australia, tax cuts to the wealthy does not result in trickle down benefits.. I also think that religions organisations should also pay taxes, unless they contribute equal amounts of assessed taxes to social works. A lo...
