"There are many forms of taxation in Australia. Individuals and companies in Australia may be required to pay taxes or charges to all levels of government: local, state, and federal governments. Taxes are collected to pay for public services and transfer payments (redistribution of economic wealth).
Income taxes are the most significant form of taxation in Australia, and collected by the federal government through the Australian Taxation Office. Australian GST revenue is collected by the Federal government, and then paid to the states under a distribution formula determined by the Commonwealth Grants Commission.
Australia maintains a relatively low tax burden in comparison with other wealthy, developed nations, at 25.6% of GDP in 2013." [Taxation in Australia. Wikipedia]
