Salamanca Market stallholders charged unnecessary stamp duty.

For the last 15 years, Salamanca Market stallholders have been incorrectly charged stamp duty by the State Government.

Historically purchasers of a stallholder’s licence were required to pay stamp duty, but a rule change 15 years ago meant this was no longer required.

Despite this change, stamp duty for market licences has continued to be collected.

Anyone who purchased a stall license since 1st July 2008 should contact the State Revenue Office to see if they are owed a refund.

Questions raised over Hobart parking fine cancelations and airness

People have rightly lost confidence in the parking system, with nearly 2000 parking fines cancelled in 12 months due to officer error or system fault, the question is how many more are incorrect?

The current parking regime is inherently unfair for people who overstay with there is no difference in the fine between 5 minutes late and 50 minutes late.
