Walter Theseira on Goods and Services Tax Voucher Fund (Amendment) Bill

(Updated: )

The Government should annually assess and publish estimates of the amount of GST paid by individuals and households at different parts of the income distribution. This could then be compared to the value of GST Voucher payouts. NMP Walter Theseira proposed this in Parliament on Thursday (Mar 26) during the debate on the Goods and Services Tax Voucher Fund (Amendment) Bill. He said this would ensure transparency. It would also be useful for fine-tuning the GST Voucher scheme.
