2024 Federal Budget Highlights  Not a lot in tax to say other than a treasurers third budget in an election cycle is the  pork belly budget (generosity for re-election) and the government was clearly conflicted in wanting to give but held in check by cost of living and inflation. In one hand they give and the RBA puts up interest rates which would have a stronger negative outcome. The only real new thing is everyone including those who don’t need it get a $300 break on their power bills ($325 for small business) during an election year and the continuation of the $20,000 instant asset write off for small and medium business. Cuts to student debts, stage 3 tax cuts for everyone all were well reported before last nights budget.

2024 Victorian Budget Highlights  All about attempting to manage Australia’s biggest debt pile with no major new taxes  as Victoria is the highest tax state already (can’t tax Victorian people much more) with some trimming in state spending, nothing too tax exciting to report (fortunately!).
