FED:NSW treasurer calls SA bank levy 'lazy'

Date: Sun 25 Jun 2017

At least the major banks can rest easy that the nation's most populous state isn't about to join the growing conga line wanting to tax them.

NSW Liberal Treasurer Dominic Perrottet isn't about to copy South Australia by hitting the banks with a levy, a proposition he describes as a "lazy approach" in getting a budget in order which can create greater problems.

"We should be reducing the tax burden where we can," he told Sky News on Sunday.

However, GST-deprived Western Australia's Labor government is considering a bank levy as an option.

Last week's SA budget planned to raise $370 million over four years through a levy on banks, drawing a heated response from industry, as it comes on top of the federal government's 6.2 billion levy from its May budget.
