Union eyes death tax

The West Australian - - NEWS -

Union lead­ers are call­ing for Op­po­si­tion Leader Bill Shorten to in­tro­duce a death tax if he wins gov­ern­ment.

The ACTU this week agreed to push for a tax on chil­dren who in­herit cash and prop­erty. In­her­i­tance tax was abol­ished in Aus­tralia al­most 40 years ago. “An in­her­i­tance tax on the wealth­i­est es­tates can re­store fair­ness to our tax sys­tem and en­sure the very wealthy and big busi­ness pay tax,” the ACTU said.
