New South Wales Treasurer Dominic Perrottet has been leading a push for tax reform, including the goods and services tax, payroll tax and stamp duties. The federal government wants its NSW counterpart to outline clear proposals for tax reform, amid doubts as to whether Perrottet has much support within the state government for his proposals. Prime Minister Scott Morrison has previously stated that the federal government will not consider tax reform proposals unless there is agreement among the states, while Federal Liberal MP Jason Falinski contends that the worst taxes are state-based and can be changed without any involvement at federal level.
