The 3 firms that didn't pay the carbon tax

Of the 250 firms required to pay the carbon tax just 3 have fallen short, including Clive Palmer's nickel refinery. The story behind their failure shows no python squeeze from anything other than questionable management and aging facilities.

The Clean Energy Regulator has now released the final numbers on how much each company is liable to pay under the first year of the carbon price. There’s no real surprises with power generators and oil and gas producers topping the list (top 50 emitters listed below).

So far, most companies have done the right thing, with just three companies failing to meet their obligations to pay for their carbon pollution emissions.
