State taxes reform: A practitioner's viewpoint presentation

Published on 13 Dec 12 by Australian Tax Research Foundation

Do you believe it is time for inefficient State taxes to be reformed? Should stamp duties continue to be charged on residential home purchases? Why are duties still levied on insurance policies?  Such reform cannot begin without alternate financial support being found for the States and Territories if they are to give up their funding streams provided by State taxes.

In this presentation, Michael Butler of Finlaysons, who is an experienced State taxes practitioner offers the “tax practitioner’s view” of the operation of these inefficient taxes and why reform in this area is necessary.

This presentation is accompanied by a paper which can be found here.
