Taxes, Families, and the Labor Party, 1990. The Australian Family Income Transfer Project. AFIT Bulletin No. 8.
Brownlee, Helen; And Others
The Australian Family Income Transfer Project (AFIT) is designed to examine the impact of government policies on the economic wellbeing 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 eighth in a series, provides an analysis of the policies developed by the Labor Party for the 1990 election. The analysis focuses on the impact on family incomes of the Labor Party's proposed changes in the rates of personal income tax, the levels and structure of wages, and the impact of new rates of child care relief. Of special interest to educators will be material on "The Education Completion Allowance" (p. 3 and p. 19). The document contains six tables and concludes with a nine-item bibliography. (DB)
