Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says 10 million Australians will receive an income tax cut in the first year of the Federal Government’s three-stage tax package. However, Shadow treasurer Chris Bowen says analysis by the Treasury shows that the top 20 per cent of income earners will benefit most from the tax package. Meanwhile, analysis of data from the Australian Taxation Office suggests that Labor’s alternative tax plan will increase the average worker’s annual tax bill by between $A500 and $A2,000 by 2024-25.
