Learn more about Mining Profits
From 2012 – 2014 the Australian government levied a 30% tax on companies on mining companies who made more than $75 million in profits. The tax was repealed in 2014 after it generated a fraction of the revenues the government initially thought it would. Proponents of the tax, including environmentalists, argue that it discourages mining. Opponents argue that it kills jobs and makes Australia’s mining exports less competitive on the international market. See recent Mining news
