For those of you who live in Australia and are in the market for a luxury car, you probably already know all about the controversy surrounding the luxury auto tax (which is 33 percent on some cars that cost over $60k). Well, according to The Age, the tax is up on the chopping block yet again for being so unpopular.

Gleaning information from a Productivity Commission review, where the tax issue is raised, The Age reports that currently the tax is placed on luxury models costing more than $60,316 or $75,375 (for those that consume less than around 1.8 gallons of gas per 63 miles). The review points out discriminatory nature of the tax, especially because it only applies to the automotive industry and not other areas of luxury — like aviation, yachts, and jewelry.

The tax pulls in around $450M in revenue, which makes sense considering that if you buy a car that costs $300k, $50k of that is all taxes. Apparently, auto brands are even detailing up front how much of the price is actually going to the Australian government.

Many auto makers have voiced their displeasure with the tax, with Mercedes-Benz calling it an unfair "tax on technology." Toyota is also irritated by the tax, because their LandCruiser and Prado models (which most wouldn't necessarily consider part of the luxury bracket) are being hit by the tax due to their prices.


Barnaby Joyce and Joel Fitzgibbon fiery climate clash in parliament halls

HALLWAY CLASH: Joel Fitzgibbon and Barnaby Joyce had an impromptu debate in the parliament halls.

A fiery clash between two rival MPs has erupted in front of cameras in the halls of parliament over climate policy.

A FIERY clash between two rival MPs has erupted in front of cameras in the halls of parliament over climate policy.

Nationals MP Barnaby Joyce was holding a press conference, criticising Labor's recently announced policy to reach zero net emissions by 2050, when Labor agriculture and resource spokesperson Joel Fitzgibbon interrupted to defend the policy.

Mr Fitzgibbon said a number of agricultural organisations, including the National Farmers Federation and the Meat and Livestock Australia, had already committed to zero net emissions by 2030.

"We're going to reach out to these organisations including BP, Santos, other oil and gas companies and say 'now you've made a commitment to zero net emissions, how can a Labor government work with you to help you meet your aspirations?'," Mr Fitzgibbon said.

Mr Joyce called the plan "a load of pig manure".

"He's going to reach out to you, he's going to reach out to the coal mines and say 'don't worry fellas, we're reaching out to you and saying you're going to lose your job'," Mr Joyce said.

"Reaching out, that's how you're going to do it? You're going to make the equation work by putting trees back on people's properties whether they like it or not.

"We're going to let the shrubs grow back on the country."

Mr Fitzgibbon said no coal miner would lose their job as a result of Labor's new policy.

"People are over the political spin, they want action, they want sensible action," he said.

The rest of the debate descended into insults and barbs, as the two spoke over the top of each other for several minutes.
