Close Unfair Tax Loopholes: End cash refunds for franking credits – SOURCE: The Australia Institute

The complexity of the Australian tax system hides many loopholes, one of the most unfair is the fact that some of Australia’s wealthiest citizens pay negative tax. The tax office actually pays money to people who have paid no tax themselves, and these people are some of the wealthiest in the country. 

It’s time this perverse tax loophole was closed.

Only by closing unfair tax loopholes can Australia implement progressive reforms like strengthening the social safety net, building social housing, investing in schools and universities, addressing climate change and improving health care.
