The budget position of the state government is already precarious due to the volatility of the iron ore price and the dollar on the revenues side and growing expenses due to a swelling population. Reducing payroll tax, one of the main reliable sources of revenue, would cause further deterioation of the state budget position. Indexation of the threshold in line with wage growth may be a viable solution because it at least locks in the proportion of funding derived by the tax to the budget.
