Greens to move for full Senate inquiry on $2,000 education tax deduction cap
"The Greens have major concerns with the Rudd government's proposal to cap self education expense deductions to $2,000. This change will require legislation and we would move to send the legislation to a full Senate inquiry," said Greens Leader Senator Christine Milne.
"The Greens are concerned that while the current scheme may need better targeting, the $2,000 cap is a blunt instrument. While rorting from some professions is anecdotally reported, that should not outweigh the concerns of people such as nurses from regional areas trying to get training.
