Mobile Home Parks: Goods and Services Tax Exemption

To the Honourable The Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives

This petition of residents of the Gateway Lifestyle Village known as Brisbane River Terraces

Draws to the attention of the House the draft ruling by the Taxation Commissioner which will essentially change the definition of a caravan or residential park so that any resident of the park who owns their own caravan or manufactured home and is renting the site would be subject to paying GST on that rent.

We therefore ask the House to consider the burden on vulnerable older Australians by the imposition of a goods and services tax upon their site fees and the significant rental cost increases arising from the application of a goods and services tax and instruct the Taxation Commissioner to order a repeal of this proposal and observe the current GST Ruling.
