Time to choose what kind of tax system we want

“The income tax exemption for the home should likely be retained – but we should be taxing those who have a home more comprehensively with a land tax – while removing duties, helping housing affordability. Such a change is underway in the Australian Capital Territory and has been proposed in South Australia.”  – Miranda Stewart, Professor and Director, Tax and Transfer Policy Institute, Crawford School of Public Policy at Australian National University
