QLD government demands a share of income tax for the states
The AFR reported that the Queensland government demanded a share of the income tax for the states. Ms Palaszczuk needs to be reminded that states already collect tax in relation to income, hidden under the moniker of ‘payroll tax’ and it’s already quite substantial. Interestingly enough, this tax applies even to low salary earners, as long as they work for a larger enterprise. Has anyone within the QLD government ranks considered the obvious alternative: if you don’t have enough money, reduce your expenses?
