I'm pretty sure all earnings within the super, arising from the super investments, are taxed at 15%.

Tax-free component on the roll-over of superannuation benefits
http://www.ato.gov.au/superfunds/con...0&mfp=&st=&cy=

A member can roll-over their super benefits from one complying super plan to another, or between different interests in the same plan. This is usually done to keep the benefits invested in the super system, or to convert a lump sum to a super income stream.

No tax is generally payable until the benefits are finally drawn down.

When is the tax-free component calculated?
Taxed super funds calculate the tax-free component as follows for a:
pension in existence as at 1 July 2007 (at least one pension payment was made before 1 July 2007), the tax-free component of the benefit is not calculated under the new arrangements until a trigger event occurs
superannuation interest in accumulation phase as at 1 July 2007, the crystallised segment was calculated as at 30 June 2007. The contributions segment will be calculated when a super benefit is paid to the member.

A tax-free component is the part of a benefit that is tax-free and does not count towards your assessable (or taxable) income.

A taxable component is the part of the benefit that is taxable. It may include two parts - one where tax has been paid and one where tax has not yet been paid. These are called taxed and untaxed elements respectively.

To work out how your super payout is taxed, you only need to understand how the taxed and untaxed elements of the taxable component are taxed. The tax-free component is not taxable.

A taxed element is the super that has already had tax paid on it in the fund. It may or may not need to have additional tax paid on it once it is paid out. You may still need to include the taxed element in your tax return.

An untaxed element is the part of your payout that hasn't had any tax paid on it in the fund, but which is still taxable. It must be included in your tax return as assessable income.

It's not you - it's an Australian "feature" (as in Micro$oft feature = bug) to always write things that are completely ambiguous.
