Dr Ron Bewley examines super tax policy changes.
In the near future we will publish a series of articles on election tax policy by Dr Ron Bewley, former Head of the School of Economics at the University of NSW.
In his first article, Dr Bewley finds that the income drawn from a super fund of $1.6m, an income of four times the age pension and the $100k tax free income for politicians and others on defined benefit schemes don’t line up as the Government claims. Also, that many older Australians face the prospect of running out of super savings before they die.
