To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled in Parliament.

The petition of certain citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the House our concern at the implementation of the Tax Reforms effecting Defence Force personnel, specifically the new Fringe Benefits Tax reporting regime. We believe that the implementation of these reforms will severely disadvantage Defence Force members and place many in financial hardship, leading to a number seeking discharge.

Your petitioners therefore request that the House takes all necessary steps to redress the crisis in Australian Defence Forces caused by these changes.

by Ms Macklin(from 72 citizens)
