Reform State Taxes to Increase Productivity

John Freebairn

Australian Economic Review, 2020, vol. 53, issue 4, 577-585

Abstract: A larger and more productive economy would facilitate the reduction of COVID‐19 government deficits and their future repayment. Reform of state taxes is among the low‐hanging fruit to include in a broad supply‐side agenda to increase national productivity. Approximate aggregate revenue neutral reform packages to reduce tax distortions and improve productivity are discussed for state taxes on property, payroll and motor vehicles.
