Stamp duty on new cars – thems expensive stamps!

by grogers on November 21, 2006

So I make the carefully considered (yeah, right!) decision to buy a new car, then the dealer says that there is a tax called stamp duty that I have to pay. So I expect to receive with my new car two thousand dollars worth of stamps inside! 🙂

What does stamp duty actually buy, anyway? I though the state government was supposed to make all its money from the GST…?
