Around 500,000 workers have been saved from the clutches of dreaded bracket creep. The government is increasing the upper limit for the second highest tax bracket of 37 cents in the dollar from $80,000 to $87,000. Rather than being taxed at 37 per cent on every dollar earned over $80,000, workers in that magic range will stay on the 32.5 per cent tax rate. That would leave them up to $315 better off come tax time. Bracket creep, where the process of inflation pushes people into higher income brackets without an increase in their spending power, has been described as taxation by stealth.

Scott Morrison said the government would “like to do more, but this is what we can afford today”. And once again, the homeowners have come out on top. Federal Budget 2016 summary, analysis: Loaded: 0% Progress: 0% Malcolm Farr takes a close look at tonights 2016 Budget.
