I feel like a novice for having not considered the tax aspects of having a CS liability.

If, by an act of divine parliamentary intervention it was considered, how would it work?

Hi Sleepy.

The child support system does not work. That is why 43 per cent of child support payers* are effectively out of work. This equates to about 330,000 people. The figure should be only about 5 or 6 per cent, which is the unemployment figure.

* reference - Table 5.2 "Child Support Scheme Facts and Figures" for the years 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 (the reporting was changed in 2007-2008 and the publication was then  stopped in 2008-2009).  


Your submission reads very well John for the employed parents on wages but you have made no mention about the self employed who get screwed over every time by the CSA/SSAT.
I put a brief outline note in the survey for you on how I was done over and no mention has been made in the submission.  Why not ?
