The second stage of the federal government’s income tax package is slated to take effect in mid-2022. However, Westpac’s chief economist Bill Evans has urged the government to begin phasing in the tax cuts from July 2020 to boost consumer spending and stimulate the economy. Commonwealth Bank economist Gareth Aird also argues that the government should bring forward some of the legislated tax cuts. Shadow treasurer Jim Chalmers says Labor has been advocating this for months.
