Irish Times: Irish won’t benefit from ruling against Australia’s ‘backpacker’ tax

0 chief executive Joanna Murphy said ‘backpacker tax’ case was taken on behalf of all backpackers and that she was hopeful it would lead to a change in the law.

“It’s entirely unlikely that any taxation office would have in place different regimes for the same community based on their country of origin,” she said.

“In our view it was very clear when the tax was introduced in 2016 that it discriminated against foreign workers and breached several international tax agreements. It also damaged Australia’s reputation as a working holiday destination,” Ms Murphy said.
