Alright, I now have another question. Car registration and road worthiness.

I'm looking to purchase a simple get around car. Cheap. Reading the ads on gumtree and some have rego for another month or so, some in different states. Is it hard to register one? Approximate cost? What is roadworthy? Must a car pass and have a road worthy cert? If a car is not road worthy, is it worth looking at?

Another thing, this one is large. I have a job offer and accepted. But curious to know of the tax system. I've tried contacting the tax office for QLD and am awaiting their response. About how much in percentage can I expect to be taken out? Will I get any of that back? I tried using the tax offices calculator and have zero dependents and am not a resident. It appears they will hold more from me for not being a resident than if I were a resident.

Many mahalos

Yes, residents pay a bit lower tax if they are on lower salary. Hower on top of tax resident pay medicare levy, Queenslad recovery levy (Nationwide not only queensland) and a number of other federal nonsense. Tax system in australia is tiered to your income. For example (very roughly) if you are a resident and receive around $50K a month you will pay about 26% in taxes. If you are on $400K salary you will pay 46% in tax.
The good thing the tax system is quite generous in refunds, a lot of expenses are tax deductible so most people end getting some tax back (non residents included)

My personal opinion non roadworthy car is worthless unless used for spare parts. Repairs, Complience with environment laws,Insurance, rego and slips will cost a fortune.
