    The tax rate isn’t the real problem. The problem is people not paying their share of tax because of loopholes

    Changing the Tax structure is the most important idea I can think of. I don’t agree with this suggestion as it’s open to loop holes. I don’t know the answer but it has to work on a single rate, like 15%, but will need to be something that has to be paid & can’t be claimed back, exempted or reduced through some loophole or other.

    I’m not a fan of this concept as effectively it is regressive, with those who spend everything they earn on low incomes being hit harder by GST than those who save or spend money overseas. I think there does need to be some playing with the tax system, but for me this isn’t it.
