Why is there no royal commission into corrupt business people and their companies cheating on their tax? Could it be because they are rich and powerful?
This may be the logic. Trickle down will increase revenue. The less tax we collect today from companies will magically produce more economic activity in the future. So having people in charge of the Australian Tax Office who ‘understand’ business and the realities they face is just what capital needs. To business, tax is just another cost and the lower the costs the higher the profit and the better off all of us will be
I believe in Santa Claus too.
Has newly appointed Commissioner of Taxation Chris Jordan been involved in tax avoidance arrangements for his clients or even himself? Will he, for example, release his tax returns for the last ten years?
Such is Labor’s degeneration they have handed the tax collecting role to a person whose whole working life has been representing the interests of big business in general in policy debates and discussions and defending specific big businesses when battling the ATO. Jordan would almost certainly be someone who has undertaken tax planning for his big business clients and the rich. One has to wonder if he has been involved in tax avoidance schemes. Neoliberal madness.
