OECD TREATMENT OF AUSTRALIAN ENVIRONMENTAL TAXES
The OECD also includes some environment taxes which would not be considered as such within the ASNA and SEEA (e.g. the load based licensing in NSW which would be considered a fee).
Another incentive listed as an Australian environmental tax is the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas (Import Levy). The import levy consists of two elements: a cost recovery levy (i.e. a license fee), and the equivalent carbon price (i.e. a tax). It is unclear if the OECD has included both elements, but the amount suggests that both are included.
