Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 04 Hansard (Thursday, 22 June 1995) . . Page.. 1134 ..


I believe, quite strongly, that this is an appropriate approach. If the property is not rented, if they have left their student children in it - all of those sorts of things - there will be no land tax. If it is income producing, if it is negatively geared, if land tax is tax deductible, and all the other things that go with this, land tax will be levied. Of course, if the Commonwealth chooses to pick this up on behalf of its employees, it is most welcome.
