Economics & Tax
ACOSS has advocated policies to ease the impact of the economic downturn and reduce unemployment
Our economics and tax policy work focus is on policies to strengthen economic development and growth so that low income people benefit from more jobs and improved incomes, and reform of the tax system to raise public revenue for the benefits and services Australians need in a fairer and more economically efficient way.
ACOSS has advocated policies to ease the impact of the economic downturn and reduce unemployment.
We are participating in the Government's review of the tax and transfer system by developing tax reform options, working with other peak bodies including the ACTU through the Community Tax Forum, and putting our views in meetings with the tax review panel.
