The GST carve up.

Recommended Posts

Listening to a radio talk show earlier and the old stone of GST and sharing of with other states came up.

I never realised that here in WA we give away $333 million a month in GST to other states, we only get 33c in the dollar while Queensland manages to grab $1.12c?


Queensland during the creation of this system was the highest grossing state via exports, coal mainly so why do they get a bigger share than here?

I never understand this. Can you imagine London saying we deserve to get more VAT money than Cornwall? (in the UK it just goes into one bucket)
