Australian govt cautioned over broadband tax laws

Leon Spencer | May 15, 2017
ACCAN warns that the government's proposed broadband tax could hit low income earners.

"However, by funding the service through other methods, for example direct budget funding which sources money from those with a greater ability to pay, could better ensure that all income groups would not face financial barriers accessing services," it said.

The Federal Government wrapped up its industry consultation on the draft legislation in early February, but is yet to release the results of the consultation process. The laws are expected to be debated in Parliament by mid-year.
