Watch The story of tax and discuss the values which underpin this narrative. What was important to the early community? What is shown as being important in colonial times? What is shown as being important in contemporary society?
Our tax system is a reflection of our community values. Discuss the kinds of values that are being expressed through Australia's system of tax? You could consider the following quotation in your discussion:
Australians value their tax and superannuation systems as community assets, where willing participation is recognised as good citizenship.
(Michael D'Ascenzo, Commissioner of Taxation, 2010)
