To the Honourable the President and Members of Australia’s Senate in Parliament assembled:

The government takes more tax from single-income families where one parent stays home to care for the kids, than two-income families where the kids go to child care centres.

This is unfair.

Your petitioners ask the Senate to:

Reform the tax system to allow all families to be taxed at the same rate per family unit.

The total income should be shared between parents and dependent children for tax purposes.

by Senator Boswell (from 434 citizens)
