The expenses of World War I were so great that the Commonwealth Government introduced three new taxes in 1917: an entertainment tax, a wartime profits tax and a bachelor tax that raised such a bitter protest that it was never put into operation.
The Tax, Super + You competition is a fun and creative way for students in Years 7–12 to learn about tax and super. The competition asks students to develop creative products, either in groups or individually, that highlight the value of tax and super in the community.
Due to the effect that COVID–19 is having around Australia, we have made the difficult decision not to run the competition in 2020.
Our Tax, Super + You teaching resources are still available. We encourage you to use these and check out some of the previous competition entries to keep learning about tax and super.
