Gender distribution of the government’s 2019 tax plan

Taxation Income tax Tax cuts Sex differences Australia

This paper will look at the gender distribution of the stage 3(a) tax cuts and compares that to the distribution of stage 1(a). It builds on a previous paper where The Australia Institute did an income distributional analysis of stage 3(a) of the tax cuts.

This paper finds that stage 3(a) of the tax cuts favours males by a ratio of almost two to one. That is, for every dollar of tax cuts females get, males will get about two dollars. By comparison, stage 1(a) has an almost even split between males and females.
