What is the full effect of double taxation?

One could consider taxes like capital gains tax and corporate tax double taxes--the individual already paid income taxes on the money she invested in the asset that produced capital gains (except in special circumstances), and the corporation's dividends (when returned to the shareholders) are taxed, as are its employees' incomes. While I sympathize with the progressive nature of these taxes, the fact that they tax the same thing multiple times--leading to some perverse effects like the interest tax shield that increase leverage beyond an efficient rate--bothers me as an economist. What are the effects of this double taxation? -- decreased investment, capital flight, more progressive income distribution, greater tax revenues? I'd like to weigh the costs and benefits of double taxation using some measure of "efficiency" (Pareto efficiency) and perhaps "fairness".

If retire aboard own house in Australia,how often do I have to return and for how long mimimum to stop home being classed as investment


That is difficult to answer as the Government is faced with a housing Crisis where foreign investors buy property and then land bank it. They do not rent out the house and they don't live in it.
then there is a lack of supply of housing and the cost of housing increases. There is talk of adding a land tax to unoccupied houses in Australia . So it might change in the future.

What Are The Benefits Of Developing An S Corporation?


The "S" Corporation structure is like the "C" Corporation in lots of ways, but offers avoidance of double taxation. If your corporation qualifies for S status using the IRS, it's taxed just like a partnership: the organization isn't taxed, however the earnings flows right through to investors that relate the earnings on their own individual returns.

What is mean by tax and service tax


TAX:

A fee charged ("levied") by a government on a product, income, or activity. If tax is levied directly on personal or corporate income, then it is a direct tax. If tax is levied on the price of a good or service, then it is called an indirect tax. The purpose of taxation is to finance government expenditure. One of the most important uses of taxes is to finance public goods and services, such as street lighting and street cleaning. Since public goods and services do not allow a non-payer to be excluded, or allow exclusion by a consumer, there cannot be a market in the good or service, and so they need to be provided by the government or a quasi-government agency, which tend to finance themselves largely through taxes.

SERVICE TAX

Service Tax is a form of indirect tax imposed on specified services called "taxable services". Service tax cannot be levied on any service which is not included in the list of taxable services. Over the past few years, service tax been expanded to cover new services. The objective behind levying service tax is to reduce the degree of intensity of taxation on manufacturing and trade without forcing the government to compromise on the revenue needs. The intention of the government is to gradually increase the list of taxable services until most services fall within the scope of service tax. For the purpose of levying service tax, the value of any taxable service should be the gross amount charged by the service provider for the service rendered by him.
