Labor rips off small businesses with new tax

13th June 2018

Queensland small businesses have been hit with a new waste tax in today’s State Labor Budget which will cost them and their customers $1.3 billion over the next four years.

"It’s a cruel and crass tax that takes more than Labor is giving in any cash incentives to business," Ms Simpson said.

"The Budget papers reveal the waste tax is a cash grab with the Labor Government’s grubby hands keeping one third for themselves.

"This budget gets a fail for ripping off our State’s overtaxed and overworked small business sector who create the majority of jobs but who have been rewarded with a new tax."
