On December 17, Catholic Health Australia issued its response to the discussion paper Fairer, simpler and more effective tax concessions for the not-for-profit sector. While some parts of government are pushing to reform structural arrangements for the tax treatment of not-for-profits (NFPs), Catholic Health Australia has argued on behalf of its hospital and aged care members that no strong evidence exists for major change. CHA said several reviews into tax concessions in recent years were creating a degree of "reform fatigue" within the NFP community. CHA also argued that many NFPs believe that the reviews are carried out with a view from Treasury that tax concessions aren't warranted -- a view that it rejects.
