New calls for stamp duty reforms. Are you paying too much?

The car industry has renewed calls for states and territories to standardise motor vehicle stamp duties across Australia – as figures show the cost varies from $360 to $1500 on an identical $35,000 family car. Stamp duty is a state tax and one of the many charges that is bundled within on-road costs for both new and used cars. On cars that cost $100,000, the stamp duty can vary from $3400 in one jurisdiction to $7900 in another.
