Cotton Australia and the Backpacker Tax

Cotton Australia and the Backpacker Tax

It remains a Key election issue for cotton growers.

The issue of the Backpacker Tax remains a key election issue for cotton growers and other Australian farmers, despite today’s announcement of a delay in the process, according to Cotton Australia.

“In the middle of an election campaign, the Government’s announcement today of a six-month delay in the process of resolving the Backpacker Tax issue just doesn’t cut it,” says Cotton Australia General Manager, Michael Murray.

“Let us be very clear that today's announcement is not in any way a solution. Cotton growers and other farmers relying on seasonal workers to bring in crops simply don’t have half a year to wait for this issue to be resolved, we need action now,” he says.
