    Abstract

    To help explain some of the issues and examine the potential environmental impacts (positive and/or negative) of selected tax arrangements, the Productivity Commission sought advice from Robert Douglas, a specialist in the field. This consultant’s report makes a contribution to understanding how the various taxes work, including provisions focused on primary production and Landcare. It notes that taxation may not be as efficient, or as cost-effective, as other approaches to encouraging environmental management.
