Dawson and Capricornia Electorates: Tax Revenue Streams

(Question No. 639)


Mr Christensen asked the Assistant Treasurer, in writing, on 11 October 2011:

In the electoral division of (a) Dawson, and (b) Capricornia, what sum was collected per tax revenue stream for (i) 2010-11, (ii) 2009-10, (iii) 2008-07, and (iv) 2007-08.


Mr Shorten: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The data necessary to answer this question in full is not available. With regard to individual taxpayers, complete data for the 2009-10 year is not yet available and data for the 2010-11 year will not be complete until late in 2012. With regard to other heads of revenue, comprehensive data is not available at the postcode level, mainly because Australian Taxation Office (ATO) data shows addresses of taxpayers' agents or accountants rather than taxpayers themselves.

However, the following information is produced by the Parliamentary Library from postcode data published by the ATO in Taxation Statistics.
