Shadow treasurer Chris Bowen has revealed that the Parliamentary Budget Office has undertaken an analysis of the gender impact of the Federal Government’s income tax cuts package on behalf of the Opposition. Bowen says the modelling shows that men will benefit the most from the third phase of the tax cuts. Treasurer Scott Morrison has responded by arguing that the income tax system is gender-neutral, a view shared by business leader Tony Shepherd. Small Business Ombudsman Kate Carnell says it is inappropriate to address the gender pay gap via the tax system.
