Once again just ludicrous that this is not a flat rate nationally, but still managed by the States. Steve Moir is on the right track here! I wonder if the State Govt would consider reducing the Tax on Cars and introducing one on Boats, why should someone buy a $1 million Boat and pay no Stamp Duty?
