The Coalition Parties' Family Tax Package. The Australian Family Income Transfer Project. AFIT Bulletin No. 7.
Brownlee, Helen; And Others
The Australian Family Income Transfer Project (AFIT) is designed to examine the impact of government policies on the economic well being of Australian families. The AFIT Project uses published national statistics as well as data and information collected by the Australian Institute of Family Studies (the project's sponsor) in its own studies and surveys to assess the impact of tax and pension proposals on different family types. This bulletin, the seventh in a series, examines the impact upon families of the changes in taxation proposed in the Coalition Parties' Family Tax Package for the 1990 election. To provide a perspective, it compares the impact of the Coalition Package with the impact of an illustrative Alternative Package, which, at the same total cost, would provide additional benefits to families in the form of family allowance, child care rebate, and a new family rebate. The document contains 7 tables and concludes with a 17-item bibliography. (DB)
