The Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance (ATA), a 75,000+ member grassroots advocacy group representing Australia’s taxpayers, today called on the Morrison government to accelerate its planned $10 billion tax cuts for Aussie workers, and for Bill Shorten’s Labor opposition to lend its support.
“These cuts will deliver welcome relief to Aussie families while stoking the Australian economic engine.” Said Satya Marar, ATA Director of Policy. “They will also ensure that PM Morrison meets his commitment to a 23.9 percent of GDP ‘tax speed limit’, with taxes as a share of Australia’s GDP set to hit 24.1 percent next year if the cuts are not passed by then.”
“The cuts will deliver relief of up to $25 a week for median income earners and will benefit ordinary workers trying to get ahead and provide a better life for their families amidst rising living costs in our major cities.
“With a budget surplus set to be achieved next year, there is no excuse. We call on Bill Shorten and Labor to match the government’s commitment.”
