True-up Shortfall Levy (General) (Carbon Tax Repeal) Bill 2013

Originating house
House of Representatives
Not Proceeding


Part of a package of 11 bills to remove the carbon pricing mechanism, the bill imposes a levy on persons who were over-allocated free carbon units under the Jobs and Competitiveness Program in the 2013-14 financial year and would have had their allocation in the 2014-15 financial year reduced if the carbon tax had remained in force, so far as that levy is neither a duty of customs nor a duty of excise.
