Greens renew push for apy food subsidy
The Greens r더나인카지노enewed their push for an apo-lax tax this week by accusing the Federal Government of using a $25 billion food and agriculture-related welfare scheme to make taxpayers pay for tax cuts for its wealthy.
“There’s nothing in this bill that is going to get us to a better tax system for taxpayers,” Green leader Senator Richard Di Natale said.
Senator Di Natal울산 출장 안마e has been spearheading the campaign to scrap the welfare program since last year.
In April last year, Mr Di Natale said the current tax-free food scheme should be abolished because it was “so wasteful”.
He was part of a group of senators which released a new report claiming it would be “unviable” to reduce the income tax threshold to $36,000.
Earlier this year, the Greens released a paper calling for a $30-a-year income tax holiday for those with “significant investment”.
A further $10 million of the money would be earmarked for increased welfare funding and “frugality savings”.
While many Greens members will likely not support a change, Senator Di Natale believes there is a danger of increasing the costs of services for taxpayers.
In the paper he said taxpayers would pay an increasing proportion of their income in tax if the scheme was abolished.
“If a $25,000 tax-free income income tax holiday were to be reinstated on an annual basis and only on an investment income that has greater or lesser marginal tax than $18,000 or $19,000 t007카지노hen we would pay an increasing proportion of income in income tax,” Senator Di Natale said.
“If this is to be the plan to raise enough revenue that we can pay this benefit without any increase in the tax-paying rates in a small group of the wealthiest Australians then a $25,000 tax-free food subsidy will continue to be one of the tools we rely on to increase our marginal tax rates.”
