Some Welfare Benefits to be replaced with Tax Breaks.
Social Services Minister Christian Porter has flagged replacing family welfare payments with direct tax breaks.
Christian Porter said that under the current family tax benefit (FTB) scheme was “deeply inefficient.”
Porter said there were many cases every year where families were paying various amounts in income tax and then being awarded the same amount back in FTB payments.
Allowing people to keep more of their own money, rather than taking money off them, washing it through government with all of the expense and administrative burden that takes and then giving it back to them, the first situation of letting them keep more of their own money is far preferable.
