Australians no longer feeling over-taxed, according to new survey

June 9, 2015

According to a new survey out this morning, Australians no longer feel over-taxed.

In fact, many of us say we would pay more taxes if the money was spent on public services like health and education.

That’s the main finding of the 2015 tax survey conducted by the progressive think tank Per Capita.

The survey of 1400 Australians across all income groups also revealed a majority felt the tax system unfairly favoured the wealthy and big business – with nearly 60 per cent saying they would back tax concessions like negative gearing being scrapped or wound back.
