Federal Government push to strip environmental organisations of their tax deductibility status
8 May 2015
The federal government is secretly planning a big new tax!
It’s not of the fossil fuel industry, which over the past six years received an average yearly subsidy of $2.9 billion. It’s not on the huge multinational companies that avoid Australian tax through offshore tax havens. 
…It’s on you! 
By taking away your tax deduction on donations to non-profit environmental organisations the federal government is taxing you for trying to make the world a better place. 
The House of Representatives Environment Committee has launched an inquiry into the official register of environmental groups that hold tax-deductible status. You can have your say addressing the terms of reference before 21 May 2015.
