Improvements in the input data are also desirable. While the available statistics are fit for the purpose of estimating environmental taxes by industry and households, a lower level of aggregation would be beneficial. For example, it is not possible to distinguish taxes on fringe benefits of cars in Government Finance Statistics (GFS), nor is it possible to identify the information directly from the ATO and tax returns. Theoretically, this could be done as the tax return includes a question to provide details of fringe benefits provided (section 23 - Australian Taxation Office, 2011b). However, this question is not currently subject to sufficient quality assurance for this purpose.
It was also not possible to distinguish import duties on cars from the GFS or separate taxes on registration for heavy duty vehicles. Additional sources are therefore necessary to identify the relevant tax revenue.
