Lifetime Net Average Tax Rates in Australia since Federation--A Generational Accounting Study
This paper presents estimates of average net payments to government, as a percent of average lifetime labour earnings, for generations born in Australia since Federation (1901), based on historical data combined with several reasonable future scenarios covering fiscal policy, growth and demographic change. The results shed light on whether certain generations have been treated more favourably by the public sector than others this century. The main conclusion is that the average lifetime net tax rate will, under reasonable assumptions, be of the order of 37-39 percent for all currently living generations born since the mid-1930s.
