Calling the government to account

3 November 2017

By Tim McKibbin – REINSW CEO

Our industry, through property taxation, is the NSW Government’s single biggest revenue generator and is the engine room of our economy.

But on a political level it is not given the attention and respect it deserves and is unjustly treated by the government. It makes no economic or common sense.

We have concluded that the property industry needs direct representation in the Upper House of the NSW Parliament to elevate the industry to its rightful place of importance, both politically and economically. The health and prosperity of NSW depends upon it.

That is why we would seriously consider supporting the establishment of a property industry and small business party under the right circumstances.

This is crucial if we are to achieve real outcomes in our efforts to overhaul the property and business-related taxes that inhibit our economy.
