As part of 'A new Tax System' introduced by the Commonwealth Government, in agreement with the states, from 1 July 2000, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) replaced various Commonwealth and state taxes. The GST is passed on to the states as grants, replacing the previous general revenue assistance grants. Due to the cessation of various state taxes under the new arrangements, the states' total tax collections have decreased significantly, which is reflected in the taxation per head in the table below. For more information on the impact of the tax changes, see State Government finance, general government, taxes and State Government finance, general government, operating statement.
