Podcast: Interview with TTPI Director Robert Breunig on Budget 2018
Australian Treasurer Scott Morrison unveiled the third Turnbull Government Budget on Tuesday 8 May. Headline announcements included up to $530 in tax relief for millions of Australians on top of plans to target bracket creep. In this interview, Tax and Transfer Policy Institute Director Robert Breunig gives his two cents on the budget, ranging from personal income tax cuts, the proposed removal of an entire tax bracket, and returning to budget surplus. Finally, he discusses how it might (or might not) contribute to the sweeping reform he says is needed to fix Australia’s complicated tax system.
