Article image for Barnett backs 12.5% GST

COAG is officially underway in Sydney, with tax reform dominating discussions.

Among the proposals being considered, increasing and broadening the goods and services tax and changing the way income tax is distributed.

Premier Colin Barnett believes an increase in the GST to 12.5% percent would be accepted and he’s also again calling for a fairer share of the carve up for WA.

Gary Adshead spoke to our Canberra Bureau chief Michael Pachi from Sydney.

WA Labor Leader Mark McGowan has told Gary Adshead, he believes Colin Barnett’s proposal is ridiculous.
