Now if only they would start talking about scrapping capital gains tax
I laughed when I heard that - .1% lower.
I dont think this is what John Edwards was asking for at the Property Expo to help boost this states property undersupply - and what is needed to fix it.
But as per the Press speal that .1% equates to an 5.88% reduction in land tax rates!!!!!!
Either way its a joke ~~ NSW government does not have a clue when it comes to property and the effect the taxes they levy have on investors.
I'm with Perky on this one-the drop from 1.7 to 1.6% is hardly noticeable and will probably cost more in paperwork to legislate.
If they're serious about encouraging investors and home buyers back into the market, take a look at reducing stamp duty and offering bigger cuts to this with land tax.
We all knew mortgage stamp duty was going, but it's still a year away for investors.
Excuse my ignorance but how does that equate?
0.1 / 1.7 = 5.88%
(1.7-1.6) / 1.7 = 5.88%
I would like to think that over the coming years the NSW govt continually chip away at land tax and stamp duty costs.
The Federal government got laughed at a few years ago for the 'hamburger' tax cuts, but they've continually chipped away at the tax rates, year after year. So I hope the NSW is following that, with the current cuts not a one-off.
I do feel for them for a certain degree, they have high expenses, largely as a result of public servants. Improving public service labour productivity has been hard for all previous Labor/Liberal governments, as the 9-5 mentality, unionism culture is very ingrained.
got it, now it makes sense, marketing BS, in the end, it's still only .1% less than what it used to be.
It's hardly marketing BS. A 5% cut is a 5% cut.
