The Albanese Government’s decision to redesign the Morrison-era Stage 3 tax cuts is a win for equality and the economy, with $84 billion dollars delivered to low- and middle-income earners over the next ten years. The policy shift is the culminaton of five years of Australia Institute research and advocacy for fairer tax reforms.
Join Richard Denniss and Matt Grudnoff as they unpack the Stage 3 changes and where the tax reform debate goes to from here.
