Parliament calls for debate on Not-for-profit tax benefits

SHOULD the Not-for-profit sector be eligible for tax concessions?

That's the question posed in a Federal Government discussion paper released to the public on the weekend.

Assistant Treasurer David Bradbury said the paper called for public input on how concessions could be improved to "assist the NFP sector to do what they do best - support Australian communities".

He said the paper was the brainchild of a working group established earlier this year to examine whether there were "fairer and simpler" ways to deliver more effective concessions.

A final report on submissions will be tabled in Canberra by March next year.
