The government in its recent mid-year budget update has left room, analysts say, for tax cuts. Will the government offer tax cuts in the April budget? We legislated $144 billion worth of income tax relief for hard working families after last year's budget. We are committed to keeping the overall fefderal tax burden in the economy below 23.9% and will continue to make policy decisions to ensure that is the case. The Australian economy continues to outperform its global peers but the U.S.-China trade war provides some headwinds to global economic growth. Is the government concerned Australia will be caught in the middle of this row?
