Tax time can be a challenge. The ATO’s aim is to collect as much tax as possible. The aim of most Australian taxpayers is to pay only as much as they have to. Navigating the rules is especially difficult for individuals and sole traders that don’t have teams of tax specialists on hand to wade through the requirements. For property investors, the complexities can be quite a burden. 41.9% of total revenue collected in 2020 ($231.2b) was collected from individual taxpayers, excluding property taxes. This is 2.4 times more than businesses paid.
