The Institute of Public Affairs warns that the Australian Government’s proposed superannuation tax reforms will adversely affect the retirement income of the people it targets. Simon Breheny of the IPA says the reforms will slash the retirement income of middle-income earners to about 58 per cent of their pre-retirement earnings. In contrast, he notes that people on low incomes can expect to receive almost 90 per cent of their pre-retirement income. Breheny argues that the Government should provide super tax relief for people on middle incomes.
