Broad: Mallee set to ben­e­fit

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Mem­ber for Mallee An­drew Broad said he be­lieved the Fed­eral Govern­ment in­come-tax re­forms would pro­vide relief for all work­ers across the Wim­mera, Mallee and Mil­dura.

He said peo­ple in his elec­torate were set to ben­e­fit from relief of up to $530 in the 2018-19 fi­nan­cial year.

Mr Broad said Mallee elec­torate res­i­dents would pay less tax and be re­warded for hard work un­der the new leg­is­la­tion.

“Mid­dle and low-in­come earn­ers and their fam­i­lies across the Wim­mera, Mallee and Mil­dura can ex­pect to gain the most from the Per­sonal In­come Tax Plan, with 73.8 per­cent of work­ers in the elec­torate qual­i­fy­ing for the full ben­e­fit of $530 a year,” he said.

“If you are a work­ing fam­ily in our patch that’s an ex­tra $1060 back into your pock­ets to spend on your fam­ily and the things that mat­ter the most to you.

“Al­most three quar­ters of work­ers in Mallee will start earn­ing their tax relief.”

Mr Broad said the next phase of the Per­sonal In­come Tax Plan would pro­tect work­ing Aus­tralians from ‘bracket creep’ with tax thresh­olds ris­ing grad­u­ally dur­ing the next five years to en­sure more Aus­tralians earned more and paid less.

“This is a great part of the plan. It means that when you get a pay rise – your tax won’t be go­ing up, you will stay in the same tax bracket and pay the same amount of tax while earn­ing more,” he said.

“This is about plain and sim­ple taxes for our hard work­ers and about keep­ing as much money in your pock­ets as pos­si­ble.”
