Labor’s renters’ tax modelling must be released

The Opposition called out Cameron Dick’s renters’ tax as soon as it was announced last year and are calling on him to release his tax modelling.

It would, as the Opposition said at the time, push up rents for Queenslanders.  

We have prosecuted this issue for the best part of a year.

Economists, property industry experts, lawyers and academics are now raising new concerns every day.

During the biggest housing crisis Queensland has ever seen, the last thing that vulnerable Queenslanders need is a government blind to the consequences of this unprecedented tax.

The Palaszczuk Government has failed to comprehensively consult, model and analyse the implications of this tax.

The Palaszczuk Government has failed to listen and now Queenslanders are paying the price.

The government is driving up rents and driving down investment in the middle of a housing crisis. It’s an absurd scenario the Premier and her Treasurer must explain.

Queensland’s most vulnerable will bear the brunt of a government trying to hide a broken budget.

This tax failure highlights the arrogance of this third term Labor government and a budget built on deceit and broken promises.

Today, the Treasurer’s credibility is in tatters.

If the Palaszczuk Government is genuine about today’s round table, it must release the modelling it used to rollout the renters’ tax, assuming it exists at all.
