Luxury Property Tax Dropped

From: Michael Croft

The proposed luxury tax in WA has been dropped. Seems it was going to affect the federal labor candidates chances of election.

Pragmatism overcomes ideology - again.

As a Western Australian (w/o land valued at a million dollars - note the proposed tax targeted land component only) it was interesting to note that a number of people, from all walks of life, voiced their anti-property tax sentiments in many sectors of the media. The 'uprising' wasn't confined to those likely to be affected by the proposed tax. Certainly there were a few people who saw the tax as a fair impost. Cynical me certainly thinks the looming Federal election had much to do with the decision to shelve the proposed tax.
