Calls for eastman inquiry review on constitutional grounds
The Victorian Government is launching a call for an independent review of the constitutionality of a proposal which allows the Australian Taxation Office to take away taxpayers’ overseas bank accounts.
AAP President Ian Macfarlane has been quoted by the ABC as saying the issue of구미안마 foreign account deductions was a “political controversy”.
While some opposition leaders were quick to criticise the move in their own party, Labor has said it needed to have a debate about its own income tax.
Mr Macfarlane said in a letter to the Coalition’s Opposition Leader Wayne Swan that the Federal Government should consider “the long-term strategic economic benefits of a return to a federal system”.
“This is in direct response to the Government’s ‘big data’ reports by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) for 2014 indicating Australia’s tax revenue fell more slowly than any other countries,” he said.
“However, the Federal Government cannot have a negative view about the performance of its tax revenue and its policies must be judged based on what is actually achieved.”
The letter was obtained by the ABC, with Mr Macfarlane saying he was talking about “certain economic facts”.
Mr Swan told the ABC Mr Macfarlane was simply “stating the obvious”.
“The ABC, unlike the ABC itself, would have absolutely no power to review the findings of that ATO report,” he슬롯 머신 said.
“Asking the Federal Government to look at the policy implications of the ATS analysis is a matter for the Parliament.”
Mr Swan said the Prime Minister had raised the issue at the dinner for the Prime Minister’s leadership party on Tuesday night.
“I understand that there’s been some speculation about a crossbench review,” he said.
“I don’t think that’s relevant to our current argument in the Senate, but certainly to those in the government.”
Opposition spokesman for financial services, Mark Butler, said Mr Macfarlane was talking about policy changes “not tax decisions”.
“People are surprised to learn about this and they’re angry about it – and the Treasurer won’t even say it was fair in an address that’s going to be expected of him,” he said.
Mr Butler said the proposal to take tax income overseas “could mean a lot of money for the federal government”.
“I hope this is the beginning of the end of this notion that the Government can빅 카지노 just tax the people who’ve got the money oversea
