Discussion Paper

The Treasurer opened the conversation on tax by releasing the tax discussion paper on 30 March 2015. The formal submissions process has now closed.

Although the period for formal submissions has closed the Government will continue to receive input and engage with the community on how we can achieve a better tax system.

You can now view non-confidential submissions.
