Project Summary

This evidence-based policy inquiry (EPI), funded by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI), will establish a viable, evidence-based strategy for breaking the political deadlock afflicting Australian housing tax policy. It will identify a pathway to reform that balances political imperative against technical policy objectives, by integrating practical policy analysis with economic modelling in three central elements of Australia’s housing tax regime.
