National Shelter response to the Treasurer’s call for pre-Budget Submissions 2016-17

National Shelter was pleased to hear that the Turnbull Government is “continuing to roll out our national plan for growth and jobs … boosting innovation, building new infrastructure, modernising the way we deliver products and services, working to deliver a more growth friendly tax system and strengthening the economy.” We make this submission to suggest reforms of the tax treatment of housing and other measures to assist with the additional costs identified in measures in this submission to address the large shortfall of affordable rental housing in Australia.
