Coalition plans to split Australia's tax system in two

Coalition plans to split Australia's tax system in two

Opposition Leader Tony Abbott has a plan to split Australia into different tax zones under a Coalition government, in order to excel economies in northern parts of the country.

News Limited has published a leaked document today, called Vision 2030, where the Coalition plans to split the country into two different personal tax zones at the Tropic of Capricorn.

The tax incentives in the north are aimed at luring private sector workers to cities, such as Darwin, Cairns and Karratha and forcibly relocating tens of thousands of public sector jobs from areas like western Sydney.

But the Federal government has slammed the idea this morning, saying southern areas will suffer.

Assistant Treasurer David Bradbury has told SKY news this morning, the Opposition’s plan will only increase taxes in the south of the country and leave people without jobs.
