Addressing an Australian Council of Social Service conference in Canberra yesterday, Assistant Treasurer Nick Sherry said the government wanted to position tax reform as a long-term undertaking. "We will be encouraging a genuine national debate by approaching tax reform with an eye to the next decade and beyond," he said.
Why the hell do they think that we would provide housing in an often -cf environment without some sweetener. I certainly dont think that the CG is enough reward, especially considering some the the crap we have to put up with tenant-wise !.
there in lies the beauty... bannish this -cf stuff forever and allow the market to reflect reality. the risks taken are simply too great to justify the measly returns on offer
I don't have strong argument againts this, as long as they do address all government taxes and banish stamp duty & land tax etc that also distorts the market.
Governments can't pick their poison. Its all or nothing.
