I'm also from the US and on a partner visa now leading to a permanent visa. Are you staying long term, because I'm just finding out that my money is stuck here if I do return to the US. Some things to think about... unless anyone has thoughts on how this can be avoided...

I will be above the 92k limit for deducting international earned income on my US taxes. I plan to stay multiple years, so won't have trouble declaring my tax home in Australia. There are no "state" taxes in Australia, right? How do other taxes, such as sales tax compare?
Finally, any other hidden taxes or fees (other than superannuation) that I need to know about?
