Australia's future tax system : consultation paper /

by Australia. The Treasury. Tax Design Review Panel.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Government Publishing Service 2008Description: PDF.Summary: "In August 2008, the Tax Design Review Panel invited submissions to the review, guided by four broad consultation questions: What major challenges facing Australia need to be addressed through the tax-transfer system? What features should the system have in order to respond to these challenges? What are the problems with the current system? What reforms do we need to address these problems? The Panel has received around 500 formal submissions from a wide cross-section of the community and a further 260 pieces of correspondence. In this paper, the Panel outlines the feedback to its consultation questions and provides information intended to help evaluate the views expressed. The Panel then asks a series of further questions intended to guide its forthcoming consultations and its thinking about the fundamental design features that Australia s future tax system might embody. These questions are deliberately open and are provided for general guidance only." -- APO webisteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Australia's future tax system : retirement income consultation paper. /

by Australia. The Treasury. Tax Design Review Panel.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Government Publishing Service 2008Description: x, 290 p.: ill. tables, graphs.Notes: URL: 'http://taxreview.treasury.gov.au/content/Content.aspx?doc=html/pubs_reports.htm' Checked: 2/03/2009 9:58:00 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: "The retirement income system was substantially changed in the latter part of the last century to respond to one of this century's greater socioeconomic challenges, the ageing of the Australian population. This will increase demand on government support to the aged when the number of individuals of working age is declining. In reviewing the retirement income system, the Panel will focus on the features that are required to best meet the needs of society in the 21st century. This paper highlights key design issues that, in the Panel's view, would benefit from further community discussion before policy directions are determined. The issues are not exhaustive. The Panel has highlighted issues it considers to be central to the design of the retirement income system as it relates to the request in the Treasurer's letter. Consultation is not limited to these issues, although comments are encouraged on broader issues through the consultation process for the Panel's Consultation paper." -- APO webisteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
