Abstract

This paper asks whether much State taxation is currently avoiding proper constitutional scrutiny, including the issue of its compliance with s 90 of the Commonwealth Constitution. That provision gives sole power to the Commonwealth to levy duties of customs and excise. The second part of the paper argues that the current interpretation of s 90 is in any event not capable of a sensible application to State laws.
