All Victorian taxpayers should be concerned that their personal financial information could be used for political gain by the Andrews Labor Government.
Victorians have entrusted their personal financial information, including details about
their homes, to the State Revenue Office. Treasurer Tim Pallas must give all Victorians a guarantee that he will not leak this information for grubby political gain.
Daniel Andrews’ decision to use the public service to leak confidential information
for political payback has resulted in a massive breach of the privacy of innocent Victorians.
Despite Labor using the public service to leak deeply personal information, including mental health records, bank balances and family home addresses, Treasurer Tim Pallas
today described this scandal as a “relatively minor breach”.
Under Labor, the State Revenue Office has already breached the privacy of 4,400 Victorian
taxpayers by sending out tax notices containing personal financial data to the wrong people.
Given Daniel Andrews and Tim Pallas have shown they are more interested in political
muckraking than doing their jobs, Victorians are entitled to ask if their
private financial information is safe from Labor.
