Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison will use his annual Bloomberg address to highlight the economic impact of the Opposition’s tax policy. He will argue that the tax take would increase by $A31bn a year under a Labor government, as the tax-to-GDP ratio would rise to 25.7 per cent. The Coalition aims to maintain the tax-to-GDP ratio at 23.7 per cent. Morrison will also call for a greater focus on health and education as a key driver of growth in productivity.
