The paper explores the tax issues arising under the Government’s July 2008 Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme Green Paper, identifying the key areas of concern and suggesting possible policy approach alternatives to address those concerns. Although the Green Paper does not present a settled policy position in a number of key areas, it does present advisers and in-house tax professionals with the Government’s current thinking and the preferred taxation outcomes, thereby providing a basis for planning a preliminary response.
