The cost of driving to and from work in Australia is estimated to be $2,800 a year.
But it turns out the calculator is designed to help drivers avoid the tax, costing taxpayers an extra $1,800.
“This is a big tax on a lot of people, and the only way to pay it is to drive around,” one user wrote.
“How can I do this?”
A spokeswoman for the Australian Taxation Office said the calculator was designed to assist drivers, and that it was “designed to help ensure that people with a car are getting the appropriate amount of money for their needs”.
“It’s not intended to encourage people to drive more,” she said.
“It is intended to help them make decisions for themselves as to how much they will need to make up for any tax they might incur.”
A spokesman for the Department of Finance said the government had increased the GST rate on petrol, diesel and petrol-powered vehicles from 7.5 cents to 8.25 cents per litre since it was introduced in 2017.
“That change is expected to save taxpayers an average of $1.05 a day,” he said.

“Gas and electricity rates are the most significant source of income for households, so when you use those income streams to pay your gas and/or electricity bills, you are also reducing your overall income and therefore reducing your burden on the economy,” a spokesman for Finance Minister Mathias Cormann said.
Drivers who have a small car may be eligible for discounts if they are eligible for an additional tax credit.
But the rebate is not available to people who buy a car or buy petrol-based fuel.
For those who use petrol-only vehicles, there is no extra tax to pay.
Gas tax is calculated at 12.5¢ per litres, so if you buy petrol for $80 a year, you will pay $6.70.
If you buy a petrol-equipped vehicle, you pay a maximum tax of $6 a litre.
Tax on petrol is a tax on the price of fuel, so it can’t be paid at the pump.
However, it can be paid by the owner of a vehicle, which is what the calculator does.
“When you buy your petrol or diesel, you don’t pay it directly at the gas pump,” the spokesman said.
Gas is a liquid.
“If you drive your car around, it gets cold.”
This is because a car’s internal heating system is designed for a colder climate, and it will need a gas-based heater if it is going to be driven at a higher temperature than that of the outside temperature.
When it is cold outside, it will have a higher efficiency than when it is warm inside, which means it will not be able to keep its internal heating systems working properly.
The average petrol or petrol-electric car uses 590 litres of fuel.
This is a much larger amount of fuel than is required to keep the car running at a high temperature, so the car will run out of fuel faster than it can supply more fuel.
“People don’t need to pay this extra tax,” the spokesperson said.
The Government is considering a $2 billion fuel tax, but the decision on how much to tax will be made by the National Electricity Market Operator.
The price of gas has dropped since the introduction of the GST in 2017, but it has been stuck at 7.50 cents a litres since.
It is expected the price will drop further, possibly to 7.00 cents a cent by 2023.
The cost per liture of gas is the same as petrol, so a 20 per cent drop in the price means a 40 per cent increase in the amount of petrol or a 40 to 50 per cent reduction in the cost of petrol.
The amount of the tax varies depending on the type of vehicle and its fuel mix.
There is a petrol tax for gas-powered cars, a diesel tax for petrol-driven cars and a diesel fuel tax for diesel vehicles.
There are also excise taxes on cigarettes, alcohol and tobacco.
These are paid by drivers in the form of a surcharge on their petrol and diesel bills.
Gas taxes are collected by the Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Corporation (APEC).
The price you pay for petrol is set by the APEC, which has two sets of rules.
The first sets are set by governments and the second sets are established by the market.
The APEC’s petrol tax is set at 13.5 cent.
The diesel tax is 13.25 cent.
There’s also a tax of 15 per cent on imported petrol.
This tax is paid by motorists, and is deducted from the price they pay for the fuel they use. This
