03 Apr 09 On using the tax system to provide social services

MEMBER 3 writes, in response to the feedback published in last week's TAXVINE on the transfer of Family Tax Benefit (FTB) claims from the ATO to Centrelink:

"If the Taxation Institute and its members have such a problem with the way FTB was being paid through the tax system, why stop there? Let’s look at the raft of individual rebates and business concessions delivered through the tax system. The Tax Act for as long as I have been practising has had this convoluted roll of providing tax rebates and concessions for taxpayers which were no more than Government handouts in one way or another."
