Tax Reform

In a speech at the Tax Institute's Victorian 3rd Annual Tax Forum last week, Roger Brake from Treasury's Revenue Group gave an inside perspective on the tax white paper, in which he discussed the need for tax reform, the current state of the tax system and broad themes from the submissions received on the Re:think tax discussion paper. Assistant Treasurer Kelly O'Dwyer also gave a speech at the same conference, discussing similar themes and outlining a range of tax reform initiatives already enacted or underway.
