More land tax or fight for the GST?

Dear Metropolitan Land Owners,

Land tax on property investments could be extended to the Peel and Bunbury areas in a bid to raise an extra $7 million a year for the WA State Government.

The Metropolitan Region Improvement Tax (MRIT) applies to residential investment and many commercial properties valued at $300,000 or more.  This tax is paid into a slush fund operated by the WA Planning Commission for public open spaces and land needed for infrastructure such as roads and rail.

Until WA receives its proper share of the GST, the State Government will have no other option but to raise taxes or reduce essential services, even close them.

If you are facing another tax on top of the land tax you already pay, join us to fight for the GST for WA by becoming supporter member here.
