Before the election Tony Abbott promised no new taxes – now we have a GP Tax, a Petrol Tax and today there are reports of a possible ‘Internet tax.’
Fairfax newspapers have reported that the Government is considering changes that would cost the telecommunications industry between $500 million to $700 million a year.
Steve Dalby, Chief Regulatory Officer at iiNet, believes that this could result in price rises of $5 to $10 a month for internet users.
Before the last election, Tony Abbott promised ‘no new taxes’ and ‘no increase to taxes’.
In the budget he introduced a GP tax that will make sick people sicker.
He also increased the petrol tax so that Australians will have to pay more to drive their car.
Now he wants to introduce an ‘internet tax’ that will make Australians pay more to browse the web.
Tony Abbott promised there would be no new taxes – he should keep his promise.
