Tax deductibility for childcare services is ‘vital’ for families

Former Speaker of the House Bronwyn Bishop says the tax office refused in 1972 to allow tax deductibility for childcare services which is “vital” for women and families.

“We are in the situation where the tax office refused to say childcare expenses could be a tax deduction in 1972 because it didn’t meet the necessary criterion,” Ms Bishop told Sky News host Amanda Stoker.

“You can deduct union fees, you can deduct computers, software, you can deduct seminars – a whole list of things but not childcare which is vital for women.”
