    End of attention

    Data for Taxation Statistics 2005-06 was compiled before all processing for the 2005-06 income year and 2006-07 fringe benefits tax year was completed. Statistics in some chapters are sourced from 2006 annual income tax returns and associated schedules (such as the capital gains tax schedule 2006) that were processed by 31 October 2007. The statistics in these chapters are not necessarily complete and will continue to change as data from 2006 tax returns and schedules processed after 31 October 2007 is included.

    Caution should be exercised in comparing the detailed table statistics for the 2005-06 and prior income years. Better comparisons will be possible when Taxation Statistics 2006-07 is published. In that edition, the 2005-06 income year detailed table statistics will include data from returns processed up to 31 October 2008.

    Where figures have been rounded, discrepancies may occur between the sums of the component items and totals. Average amounts, percentage changes and proportions are calculated from actual (not rounded) figures.

    In order to meet privacy regulations, the following measures have been applied.

    • some cells in some tables have been aggregated, but this does not affect the total number of records (number indicator showing the number of returns or taxpayers) and the total amounts
    • number indicators in the detailed tables may have been rounded to the nearest multiple of 5, so totals may differ from the sum of their components, and
    • amounts and totals may vary between tables.

    Descriptions or definitions of the items in the chapter and detailed tables are in the Return forms and other publications section of this publication. It is also included on the CD-ROM attached to the hardcopy version of this publication available at Order Tax Office products online.
