And so it was resolved in the affirmative.


- 10:00:13 AM

Mr Morrison presented reasons, which were circulated, and are as follows:

Reasons of the House of Representatives for disagreeing to the amendments of the Senate

Senate Amendments (1, 2 and 3)

The amendments proposed by the Senate remove step three of the Personal Income Tax Plan. Step three of the Personal Income Tax Plan simplifies and flattens the tax system by abolishing the 37 per cent tax bracket entirely, reducing the number of tax brackets from five to four.

The Plan is a package that gives certainty to Australian families that they will keep more of what they earn in the future. It comprises three steps.

Step 1, prioritises low and middle income earners by providing tax relief of up to $530 to help with cost of living pressures.

Step 2, protects what Australians earn from bracket creep, ensuring that a pay rise, extra overtime or working more hours do not get eaten up by higher tax rates.

Step 3, by simplifying and flattening the tax system, ensures that, by 2024-25, some 94 per cent of taxpayers will face a marginal tax rate no higher than 32.5 per cent based on projections.

High income earners will continue to pay their fair share with the tax system remaining progressive under the Personal Income Tax Plan. For example, a person on $200,000 would pay around 13 times more tax than a person on $41,000.

In 2015-16, the top 20 per cent of taxpayers paid around 61 per cent of all personal income tax. Under the Personal Income Tax Plan, this cohort is projected to continue to contribute a broadly similar share in 2024-25.

In 2015-16 those on the top tax bracket paid 30.3 per cent of all personal income tax collected. Under the plan those on the top tax bracket will pay around 36 per cent of all personal income tax collected in 2024-25.

The Personal Income Tax Plan delivers lower, fairer and simpler taxes to all taxpayers.  

Accordingly, the House of Representatives does not accept these amendments.

Mr Morrison moved—That the reasons be adopted.

 3SUSPENSION OF STANDING ORDERS MOVED

Mr Burke  moved—That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the Member for Watson from moving the following motion immediately—That the House—

(1)notes that:

(a)gross debt has grown to a record half a trillion dollars under this Government;

(b)last night, in an act of gross incompetence, this Government teamed up with Senator Pauline Hanson’s One Nation to vote to support a bill which abolished all income tax rates from 2024;

(c)this is just the latest act from a Government consumed by chaos and incompetence, which has outsourced all economic policy to Pauline Hanson’s One Nation;

(d)for years One Nation has advocated flat tax, last night the Government adopted this policy and set the rate at zero;

(e)the Government has also dealt with bracket creep by abolishing every tax bracket; and

(f)the bill which was supported at the third reading stage by the Government and One Nation will open up a Budget black hole of $240 billion every single year once implemented; and

(2)condemns this Government for its gross economic incompetence.
