To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of the State of Queensland respectfully showeth that:

The legislation to tax fringe benefits is iniquitous, inequitable and unfair;

It will severely disadvantage both employees and employers;

Employees will clearly lose many fringe benefits as a direct result of the additional heavy taxation burden being imposed upon employers;

Employers will be forced to pay even higher levels of taxation to provide fringe benefits for employees.

Your petitioners humbly pray that the House of Representatives, in Parliament assembled, urge the Government to:

Immediately abandon the Fringe Benefits Tax.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
