To assist people in making their initial submissions, the Panel suggests that the following framing questions may be useful.
- What major challenges facing Australia need to be addressed through the tax-transfer system?
- What features should the system have in order to respond to these challenges?
- What are the problems with the current system?
- What reforms do we need to address these problems?
The call for submissions follows the recent release of the Treasury discussion paper, "Architecture of Australia's tax and transfer system": see 2008 TAXVINE No 31 (8 August 2008).
