Foundations of Tax Law examines the fundamentals of taxation, with a focus on Australia‘s most important tax: the income tax.

Foundations of Tax is taught by Associate Professor Miranda Stewart, one of the Co-Directors of Studies for the tax program, who has significant experience and knowledge of tax law and practice both in Australia and internationally.
