TSA joins tax discussion
The Salvation Army’s Manager of Government Relations Major Brad Halse
The Salvation Army joined community leaders from ACOSS (the Australian Council of Social Services), UnitingCare Australia, Vinnies Australia, Anglicare Australia, Oxfam, the Australia Institute and ACTCOSS (ACT Council of Social Service Inc.) to lobby the senate to oppose proposed company tax cuts for big business.
If the federal government’s company tax cuts are legislated, the concern is that there will be less money available to fund schools and hospitals. That concern is exacerbated by the fact that Australia’s ‘big four’ banks gain an extra $9.5 billion over the first decade of the tax cuts, and that many of the benefits of the company tax benefits will go to foreign shareholders.
