27/05/2013 Queensland has set the precedent of breaking a payroll tax promise. Will WA follow? The Queensland government will break its election promise to increase the payroll tax threshold. Raising the payroll tax exemption to $1.6 million was one of Premier Campbell Newman’s key election policies, but the government has announced it will defer the increase for two years in a bid to save $235 million.
