Submission to Tasmania Fire Services Review 2021
19 Nov 2021
IAG’s submission to the consultation relating to the Blake Fire Service Act Review and the Treasury and Finance Options Paper – Fire Services Funding Arrangements.
IAG has been a strong advocate for improved taxation bases and taxation reform that see revenue dependency shift from transaction style taxes (for example insurance) towards those taxes that are more efficient.
IAG believes the current regimes for the taxation of insurance are inconsistent upon the generally accepted taxation principles of simplicity, efficiency and equity. These tax regimes are inappropriate, regressive and based on historical circumstances rather than equity.
