so getting a tax concessions on a vehicle isn't a free ride on tax payers ? This is where I'm going to make an even broader statement and say if you run a business you should pay for ALL IT'S EXPENSES, there should be no such thing as a refund from the ATO for running a business. It's rapidly becoming a User Pay system all over the country so why aren't businesses being treated the same. If you don't want the expenses then don't run one I've always said. Now I've just got to duck all the bullets coming my direction.
