Federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg says he is keen to work with the states and territories to help reduce the payroll tax burden on companies. Frydenberg says he would "love the states" to get rid of the tax, but Victorian Treasurer Tim Pallas has rejected any likelihood that the state will do so. Payroll tax generated $6.2 billion for the Victorian government in the 2018-19 financial year, and Pallas says abolishing it would reduce the government’s ability to fund services and infrastructure projects.
