As per the taxation Laws to Australia, a visitor visiting Australia is liable to pay tax. However, there are certain aspects of that are being checked to ensure the fact that the tax liability being imposed is at par the guidelines of Australian taxation laws. As stated by Subedi (2016) one of the major aspects of the taxation laws for the visitors is the fact that the visitor needs to live in the country for more than six months. While a visitor lives for more than six months in Australia he is liable to pay taxes. As stated by Parker (2013) another important aspect is the fact that the visitors needs to stay in the same place for more than six months. While the person is changing his resident to different regions of Australia within this span of six months he is not liable to pay taxes. Another important fact is that a visitor in Australia needs to develop a local tie with the business in the place where he is residing. This is one of the most important aspects that is being considered while evaluation of tax.
