RevenueSA, through the Commissioner of State Taxation, is responsible for:
- management, collection and enforcement of South Australia's taxation revenue;
- management of various grant schemes;
- management and collection of the fixed property component of the Emergency Services Levy (ESL); and
- management of government rebate incentive schemes.
The revenue collected (apart from ESL which specifically funds the provision of emergency services), is used by the Government to fund the provision of essential services including public health and safety, education and law and order for South Australian citizens.
