Australia's tax system has many faults, including gross and increasing inequity and inefficiency, over-reliance on taxing the income and products of labour and capital, inordinate complexity, excessive compliance costs (particularly for small business), extreme vulnerability to avoidance and evasion, continuing erosion of the revenue base, promotion of speculative over productive activity, promotion of wasteful resource use, and environmental degradation.

Real reform would address these and other issues;
a GST does not.

An alternative -- resource rent revenues -- is designed
to address rather than add to tax problems.
