Australian Federal Budget 2018 - 2019


The 2018/19 Federal Budget sees the government predicting a return to surplus a year earlier than predicted in 2019/20.

Personal income tax relief is the centrepiece of the budget with a 7-year plan designed to give immediate tax relief to low and middle taxpayers, reduce bracket creep and provide a simpler tax structure.

Senior Australians will benefit from increased home care packages, easing of work restrictions on super and an extension of the pension loan scheme.
