The Marshall Liberal Government will support the proposal by Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison to remove the GST from feminine hygiene products.
Treasurer Rob Lucas said the proposal will be discussed at a meeting of all Treasurers in September or October.
“Whilst the total cost is still being confirmed, it has been estimated at about $30 million,’’ said Treasurer Lucas.
“If that estimate is accurate, the total cost to SA might be up to $3 million per year.
“Treasurers have been discussing whether options exist to make up the shortfall in GST collections.”
