Trad taxes JobKeeper payments

Thursday 16th April 2020

Media Statement from LNP Deputy Leader and Shadow Treasurer Tim Mander on Labor’s decision to tax JobKeeper payments made to Queensland businesses to save the jobs of workers:

“Taxing JobKeeper payments is a blatant cash grab at the expense of Queensland workers.

“The payments are a lifeline for Queensland workers, not a cash register for Jackie Trad. 

“Businesses at this point of time need clarity and certainty.

“Annastacia Palaszczuk needs to immediately rule out any taxation of JobKeeper payments.”
