Greens will move for Senate inquiry into corporate tax evasion

Media Release
Christine Milne 29 Sep 2014

Greens Leader Christine Milne says she will this week move for a Senate inquiry into corporate tax evasion in Australia.

"In Tony Abbott and Joe Hockey's Australia the real leaners are the big corporations. The big end of town is not paying anywhere near the amount of tax it should be paying," Senator Milne said.

"Instead Tony Abbott is trying to raise revenue from the poor, the sick and the young. This is wrong.

"If the Abbott government wants to raise revenue for its phoney budget emergency they need to crack down on corporate tax evasion.

"Tony Abbott and Joe Hockey are more interested in protecting the mega profits of the big end of town rather than governing for the entire nation.

"The Greens will move for a Senate inquiry to expose the real options available for raising revenue from those who can afford to pay - the big end of town."
