Malcolm Turnbull has announced a possible policy:
MALCOLM Turnbull is planning a tax assault on the Rudd Government, with new policies to streamline the system and spare thousands of PAYE taxpayers from filing returns.

So you don’t need an Ergas Review to know exactly what the right thing to do is. The costs and benefits have been well and truly worked out and we should make filing tax returns optional giving back many Australians one day a year for the rest of their lives.
