Stamp Duty

Stamp Duty is a form of tax imposed by state governments in Australia for a number of types of transactions including car sales, home sales and life insurance.

As Stamp Duty is state based, it may vary between states. While it is generally included in the base premium for life insurance, this may not be the case for trauma, TPD and income protection insurance.
