Full text not available from this repository.


This book considers the distribution of taxation powers within a federation such as Australia. After considering aspects of federal systems, it focusses on the High Court's interpretation of s90 of the Constitution, giving the Commonwealth exclusvie power over customs and excise duties. It considers the question of distribution of taxation powers within a federal system from an economic perspective, and considers aspects of other federal systems, particularly Germany and the United States. It also considers financial grants by the federal government to state governments as a means of addressing the issue of vertical fiscal imbalance.
