Opposition Leader Bill Shorten says Labor will only support the first stage of the Federal Government’s personal income tax package, which is slated to take effect on 1 July. The government has ruled out legislating the first stage separately, and it requires the support of eight crossbenchers to pass its bill in the Senate. At present it has the support of seven crossbenchers, with One Nation still opposing the third stage of the tax cuts. Shorten has indicated that a future Labor government would scrap the second and third stages of the tax package if the bill is passed.
