"Taxation in Australia is levied at three levels of government: Federal, State and local. Examples of Federal taxes include income tax, fringe benefits tax, goods and services tax, sales tax, customs and excise duty, and departure tax. State taxes include land tax, payroll tax, stamp duty, financial institutions duty, and debits tax. Local government taxes include property rates" (Encyclopaedic Australian Legal Dictionary).
