Winning Streak: John MacKenzie chats with Cr. Cathy Zeiger, CRC Representative for Division 3, about the Cairns Council backing away from the controversial tenant tax.
John MacKenzie chats with Cr. Cathy Zeiger, CRC Representative for Division 3, about how the Cairns Council will back down from introducing the controversial tenant tax.
The tax proposal was aimed at investment properties (non-principle places of residency) within the Cairns Regional Council electorate.
An increase in rates would only see landlords struggle with increased bureaucracy, and tenants would suffer as rents rise to reflect such changes.
Cr. Zeiger was outspoken against the rates increase from its inception.
