La­bor’s heart­less grey no­mad tax

THE dream of set­ting off on a trip of a life­time through Queens­land’s re­gional towns and cities is be­ing wrecked by a heart­less tax in­tro­duced by gov­ern­ment.

Grey no­mads who’ve done their sums to plan their trip across this state in a mo­torhome or camper­van are now be­ing slugged thou­sands of dol­lars ex­tra by La­bor.

Many have worked hard their whole lives to af­ford their dream ve­hi­cle or sold their houses to fund the pur­chase.

But the La­bor Gov­ern­ment has also done the sums and found there’s rev­enue to be raised by tax­ing mo­torhomes and camper­vans.

These aren’t the mega-rich La­bor is hurt­ing,

These are nor­mal Queenslanders who have worked hard, paid their taxes and now La­bor wants them to pay more. The ve­hi­cle tax will add thou­sands of dol­lars to the cost of a camper­van.
