The federal government is planning a tax crackdown on the 11 million Australians who earn income from platforms such as Uber and Airbnb. It is estimated that income from shared-economy platforms now totals around $15bn a year, but at present the Australian Taxation Office is not able to determine the extent of underpayment or non-payment of tax on such income. The government proposes the introduction of a mandatory tax liability reporting regime for people who work in the shared economy. It will release a discussion paper on the issue on 23 January.
