State Taxation and Treasury Legislation Amendment Bill 2022

Extending the multipurpose taxi program to 80 000 Uber drivers has significantly reduced business for taxi operators and reduced the safety for the travelling public. For the past year and a half I have had the industry telling me just how much harder it is to keep wheelchair-accessible vehicles on the road, with operators already removing their vehicles because they cannot continue running at a loss. This exemption acknowledges the importance of our wheelchair-accessible taxis and their essential role in our community. I hope that this small change can help alleviate some of the financial burden experienced by these operators. There are a couple of requirements for this exemption. The vehicles must meet the requirements to provide unbooked work and must be less than two years old. The exemption will be introduced from 1 July this year.
