Tax relief for Australians with annual income of less than $40,000 will be a key focus for Labor leader Bill Shorten in his Budget reply speech on 4 April. Workers whose income is below this threshold will be offered more generous tax cuts than those outlined in the Budget. Meanwhile, the federal government has announced that the one-off cash payment cash for pensioners, single parents and carers to offset rising energy costs will be extended to Newstart recipients. This will add about $80m to the cost of the Budget measure.
