Table 27.16 shows, for the general government sector, the amount of taxation revenue collected in Australia during 2000-01 by level of government and by type of tax. Total taxation revenue collected during the period was $213,766m. Commonwealth government taxation revenue totalled $175,010m and accounted for 82% of total taxation revenue while total state and local government taxation revenue totalled $38,986m and accounted for 18% of total taxation revenue.

Income taxes continue to be the largest component of the Commonwealth Government's taxation revenue, although their proportion of the total in 2000-01 fell when compared with the previous year as a result of the introduction of GST and other tax changes. Property taxes continue to be the largest component of state and local governments' taxation revenue.

At the end of this section is an article looking at the impact of recent tax reforms.
