David Bradbury had an op-ed in the AFR this morning. This line, sounds great, but just isn’t.
I will never accept the proposition that in the future Australian families and small businesses should shoulder more of the tax burden in the absence of a fair contribution from multinational enterprises that go to extraordinary lengths to ensure their tax obligations are next to nothing.
So I thought I’d check out how much tax Bradbury’s constituents pay compared to small business and compared to large business.
I think that his constituents and small and micro business has a long, long way to go before they shouldering much of the tax burden – especially compared to the amount large business pays.
