    Author(s): Richard Eccleston; Julia Verdouw; Kathleen Flanagan; Neil Warren; Alan Duncan; Rachel Ong; Stephen Whelan; Kadir Atalay

    Description: This research is the final report of the AHURI Inquiry into ‘Pathways to Housing Tax Reform in Australia’. It features real-world modelling and implementation time frames to steer tax settings that progress the efficiency, equity and sustainability of housing tax policy, and also presents meaningful long-term political pathways to achieve these outcomes.

  2. Pathways to state property tax reform

    Author(s): Richard Eccleston; Neil Warren; Julia Verdouw; Kathleen Flanagan

    Description: Reforming state and local government property taxes can contribute to a fairer and more sustainable housing system as well as delivering additional economic and social dividends. This research proposed a nationally coordinated incremental strategy with clearly defined short, medium and long-term objectives, including administrative reforms; a simpler and fairer revenue neutral transfer duty; and replacing transfer duties with a broad-based recurrent property tax.

  3. Recent housing transfer experience in Australia: implications for affordable housing industry development

    Author(s): Hal Pawson; Chris Martin; Kathleen Flanagan; Rhonda Phillips

    Description: Focusing primarily on public housing transfers in Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania, this Inquiry analysed the associated processes and frameworks to reveal the lessons learned. The case studies reveal aspects of transfer practices such as capturing Rent Assistance-enhanced revenues; the transfer of ‘management’ rather than freehold title; and the absence of a role for tenants. Financial modelling indicated that management transfers, where community housing providers are assured of cash flow from rents, may be a viable means for addressing moderate maintenance backlogs, enhancing community development and modestly expanding affordable housing portfolios.
