State fees and charges to be increased by Andrews Labor government from 1 July driving new level of financial anxiety for Victorians

Since 2013-14, Victorian tax revenue has increased by an eye-watering 80 percent from $16.9 billion to a forecast $30.5 billion in 2022-23, now there's even more pain to come for Victorian from the Labor government's mismanagement.

Bill shock and skyrocketing costs of fuel, groceries, power and gas are driving a new level of financial anxiety for families and small businesses trying to recover from the pressures of the pandemic. But there's more pain to come with the Labor government set to increase more than 2150 state fees and charges from July 1.

Our future generations, should not bear the burden of Labor government's mismanagement on projects that will aid in Victoria's economic recovery

Labor's addiction to tax and charges

It'll mean more cost increases in our everyday lives at a time when many of us can least afford it, with hikes to apply on licence to drive or hunt, for planning applications and on building permits. Under the Labor government, we're already carrying the burden of 40 new and increased taxes - despite the Premier's 'iron-clad' promise of "no new taxes" before the 2018 Election.

Labor is addicted to taxes and charges. Their mismanagement and waste on major projects - now more than $28 billion - is forcing Daniel Andrews and his Treasurer Tim Pallas to grab revenue from everywhere they can.

When you head to the ballot box, remember this November that only a change in government will stop the waste. The Nationals will guarantee no new taxes and an audit of all big major projects to rein in the waste. Because our children, and our children's children shouldn't have to pay the price of Daniel Andrews' inability to manage our state's budget.
