Simply put Australia taxes the p!ss out of their citizens. Ive heard a variety of reasons but none too convincing.
However I suspect Australia's publicly-funded universal health care system to be one of the main catalysts of this.
Actually it's a used car so there is bugger all tax on it, 10%. New car's are a different story. The government has to tax the crap out of the people, how the hell do we live like we do with only 20 million of us. Plus I'd rather pay a bit more tax for free health care. And the health care ain't free. I pay $900 a year included in my tax bill.
