Mixed Fortunes: The History of Tax Reform in Australia, Paul Tilley

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Tuesday Jul 5, 2022, 1:00 pm

From: New South Wales

Australia’s history is sprinkled with tax reform attempts – some successful, some not. This seminar explores that history through three phases. First, the establishment of the Constitution at Federation in 1901 and the 1942 unification of income tax. Second, the seminal Asprey review in 1975 that set up the major tax reforms of 1985 and then 2000. Third, the mixed efforts at tax reform, at both the Commonwealth and state levels, this century.  This is a hybrid event which will be held both in person and online via Zoom.
