HELP WANTED FOR SLOMO'S TAX TASKFORCE

Scott Morrison likes to talk up the Tax Avoidance Taskforce, announced with great fanfare in the 2016 Budget (despite primarily consisting of 900 staff in existing programs).

But in answering a Senate Estimates question on notice, the government has now revealed that it has yet to fill 43 of the funded positions.

When it comes to providing a tax cut to the big banks or firing 3000 tax office staff, the Turnbull Government is quicker out of the blocks than Usain Bolt.

But when it comes to closing loopholes or appointing staff to tackle tax avoidance, they are slower than a snail in molasses.
