Bill Shorten Will Tax You Dead – Literally

It makes my blood boil when I hear Bill Shorten say he cares about workers. It’s nothing but a lie!

Yesterday, Union bosses with Bill Shorten’s blessing told us Labor would like to reimplement a “Death Tax” or “Inheritance Tax” if Labor win the next election.

I can’t tell you how terrible this idea is!

Queensland was the first state to abolish ‘Death Duties’ under Joh Bjelke-Petersen when he was Premier. Since then, all states have followed and we haven’t seen ‘Death Duties’ in Australia since 1979.

I’d be keen to hear from Union members on this. Do you support a tax on whatever you leave behind for your family when you die?

How does everyone feel about losing half of their nett worth to Labor’s Death Tax when they die?

Bill Shorten is like a scavenger picking from the carcass of society at the worse time in a families life with this idea.

    Heaven help Australia if Shorten becomes PM, The idea of death taxes is absolutely abhorrent to me and as far as I am concerned no Government has the right to take away hard earned wealth left to people in a will, One things for certain it would not stop at this, Shorten in partnership with the Greens and his Union Masters will well and truly ruin Australia with the nasty Agenda they will implement if elected!

    We have saved all of our lives to leave some sort of legacy to our children NOT the ATO. Typical Labor can’t help themselves looking for ways to get their hands on YOUR/OUR money. It absolutely amazes me that we try to remain so hard to be Self Funded Retirees (and so pass on to our children) so we and hopefully they, won’t burden the system, but we keep being penalised for it. And yes I agree this is only the tip of the iceberg.

      If you do your homework you will find that the Aust Gov has already put into practice to tax us all the way to the grave. If you have saved assets and hope to pass this on to your children you had better plan that at least 7 years years before giving them moneys becuase the Gov wants apiece of that as well. If you have any assets the Gov wants you to use that up before you can claim a pension.Trying to claim a pension for which you are entitled to, due to the taxes you paid all your working life, you will see that Centrelink will make it as difficult as possible and draw out the proccess hoping you will withdraw your claim after being discouraged. The answer to better deals for the ordaniry worker is to write to local member and demand that Gov Tax the huge companies that are avoiding paying billions of legitimate taxes in Australia due to avoidance schemes set up to tax profits at much lower rate than in Australia.

        All that is avoiding the issue…the family home does not come into the equation when it comes to the pension. We worked hard for our home and are very happy to know that our sons will get something when we go…but not if greedy Bill gets his way.

    How deep can some people go into the gutter? Imagine paying tax for your entire working life while making sacrifices to be independent in the future and if you die and there are funds left in your coffers, they now want to tax that. This dear country of ours is slowly but surely being damaged beyond repair. Sad! Sad! Sad!

    Seems like an inheritance tax won’t affect the ultra rich, because they will be smart enough to have their assets in a family trust, or give it away to family before they die. I can see this affecting the families of people who die unexpectedly. Families who can afford to have life insurance, won’t be too affected. But most ordinary people don’t have life insurance, family trusts, nor accountants and lawyers to squirrel assets away.
    Seems cruel that this policy would mostly affect the typical working class Australian.

    Some form of tax to help restore integrity to funding for aged care is needed to restore aged care funding. Smaller nursing homes that do an excellent job in caring for the aged are struggling financially under successive government cutbacks. This cost need can only be meet by by those who need those services.

      We paid taxes all our lives for our old age and to cover our aged pension. We don`t need extra taxes to cover the ones successive governments have spent.And mny will say that pensioners pay no tax. Not true!. We pay evey tax that everyones else pays excpt income tax.

    We have Income Tax
    and GST eroding our earnings. Company’s pay taxes on their businesses. Taxes are crippling our country’s economy. Large savvy businesses are moving offshore to improve their returns.
    I wonder if our major political parties understand economics.
    We need to close the borders, bring industry back, support agriculture and innovation, improve our military, make sure our land is retained by and for Australians, privatise the media, implement freedom of speech and reduce taxes to support spending.

    I wouldn’t trust Shorten for the date in a calendar factory. He is lower than a rattlesnakes guts.
    All you leave in inheritance is already taxed numerous times and this conniving lowlife wants to rob your kids after you die. Why would anyone be stupid enough to vote for him or his ilk?

    Bill Shorten should be renamed Bill unions have him by the short n curlys as he is behoven to them to get him elected. Victorians and South Australians get ready to start paying 20- 25% of your income on electricity with regular power cuts . Up in Queensland we will be warm in the winter and cool in summer with affordable electricity as we have far more energy than we need from lovely brown coal.

    Death tax was abolished with good reason and we do not want or need such taxes imposed. It is absolutely criminal for any Govnt to tax inheritances. What right does a Govnt have to tax again any (money or sold property) left in a will to a beneficiary. If Bill Short-on brains gets in the country is in serious trouble.
