Taxation (Income Tax Rate and Other Amendments) Bill

Proposed amendment

Andrew Bayly, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 16

In clause 16, new table 1, replace rows 1 and 2 (page 5) with

1$0 – $17,0000.105
2$17,001 – $48,0000.175

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Taxation (Income Tax Rate and Other Amendments) Bill to increase the lowest threshold from $14,000 to $17,000.

The purpose of this amendment is to benefit lower-income earners by the approximate value of extra revenue the Government expects the new tax threshold to bring in.

This costs $560 million (slightly higher than the $550 million expected) and benefits all earners over $17,000 by $210 p.a.
