Analysis of tax data shows that Labor’s proposal to abolish cash refunds for excess dividend imputation credits would affect up to eight per cent of electors in the 10 most marginal federal seats. It is estimated that they would lose an average of $2,700 as a result of the policy. However, shadow treasurer Chris Bowen says Labor will press ahead with the policy if it wins the upcoming election. He has also suggested that self-funded retirees should vote against Labor if they are concerned about the policy, prompting Treasurer Josh Frydenberg to accuse him of arrogance.
