In Question Time today, Treasurer Tim Pallas refused to rule out increasing any tax in this year’s upcoming State Budget.
During the week of the 2018 election when launching Labor’s financial plan for the next four years, Tim Pallas promised:
“It contains no new taxes, whatsoever. No tax increases, no extra charges, it's all there in black and white.”
Under the Andrews Labor Government, Victoria already has 27 new or increased taxes and is the highest taxed state in Australia, and it’s only going to get worse for Victorian families who are already doing it tough.
Tim Pallas needs to stop contradicting himself and come clean to Victorian taxpayers about the real cost of Labor.
Comments attributable to Shadow Treasurer, Louise Staley:
“Under Labor, Victorians face the highest taxes, the highest debt and the highest power bills in the country.
“Andrews and Tim Pallas have buggered the budget and we know when Labor runs out of money it comes after yours.”
