Opposition Leader Bill Shorten used a press conference on 16 April to state that Labor will not increase existing taxes on superannuation or introduce new taxes if it wins the federal election. Shadow finance minister Jim Chalmers later clarified Shorten’s comments, stating that he meant there will be no changes to super policy apart from those that have been previously announced. Labor has in fact previously announced four proposed changes to super policy. The Coalition has estimated that these reforms could increase tax revenue by about $34bn over a decade.
