Government tax plans are unfair

I AM writing to comment on the Government's plans to consider the double whammy of both a water and a property tax in the next Budget.
This will hit householders struggling to make ends meet in a most profound way and indicates once again that the Government is out of touch.
I have no real issue with a water tax, if it is based on usage, and not designed simply to fill the coffers of a Government that blew years of economic growth on race tents, developers' loopholes and trips overseas for wives and partners.
