Taxing Personal Capital Gains in Australia: An alternative way forward
journal contributionposted on 2023-05-18, 13:16 authored by Evans, C, Minas, J, Lim, Y
This article proposes the abolition of the 50% capital gains tax (CGT) discount for personal taxpayers and its replacement with a non-cumulative annual tax-free threshold for the taxation of capital gains. This reform, it is argued, would considerably enhance the equity, efficiency and simplicity of the Australian CGT regime, as well as providing a positive revenue outcome for the Treasury.
