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

This petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia urges the House to call upon the government to raise the tax free threshold level from $6,000 to $10,000 and lower the marginal tax rate payable on taxable incomes over $60,000. Approximately 80% of individual wage earners earn a taxable income of $20,000 - $60,000 p.a. Many are being taxed between 42c-47c in the dollar at marginal rates.

by Mr Crean (from three citizens)
