The Greens political party is certainly not vague about death and taxes. Their website shows that the Greens are now combing these two inevitables into one: the death tax. Those contemplating voting for them at the upcoming Victorian election should understand that this thoroughly regressive tax was resoundingly abandoned in Australia in the 1980s. Voters should know that when they vote for the Greens they are voting for a 30 per cent death duty tax. The Greens candidate at the recent Caulfield state election forum said that the death tax would be reintroduced at the rate of 30 per cent.
