    Infinitely??? Really??? So what percentage of a 'rich' person's income should be given to the government? Please give me a number of what you think is fair.

    Would you care to provide some evidence that 'they' pay less income tax than 'the rest of us'. I would like to see your numbers and how you came to that conclusion.

    Are you honestly trying to tell me that the mega rich in Australia don't use tax loopholes to their advantage?

    Understand. Don't agree, though

    From the ABC - The top 1 per cent however (those with an average taxable income of around $548,000) earned 9.2 per cent of total income but paid 17 per cent of the tax. This isn't surprising when you consider that the top 1 per cent earn as much as does the entire bottom 24 per cent.


    Obviously completely biased...unlike the Australian

    From your article.

    The figures show 99.3 per cent of Australia's millionaires did pay tax in 2010-11 and 98.9 per cent paid a lot: $8.74 billion among them. That 0.1 per cent of taxpayers paid almost 10 per cent of all income tax.

    There are always bad apples. You cannot generalise like you did in your previous post.

    they pay less income tax than the rest of us due to loopholes regarding investments
    That is not an accurate statement. It is similar to me saying that those on a disability pension don't have a disability. Most do, but some don't.

    I see that you would rather run, than to answer my question on what percentage you think is fair. It is a pretty simple question.

    I am not saying they don't pay a lot of tax, they do - because they earn a lot. But the average Australian earning an average wage pays 32.5% to 37% tax and the mega rich pay 17%. Hardly seems fair.

    It isn't about the amount - it is about he percentage. And I for one, am sick to death of people like Gina Reinhardt - who didn't even "make" her own money - but inherited it and the company - getting a sweet deal at tax time.
