After more than five years of lobbying, people with Alopecia Areata are STILL paying GST on wigs!
People who experience hair loss through cancer treatment have options which make them exempt from paying GST on their wigs. At the AAAF, we believe that wigs for people with Alopecia Areata should fit into the same category. We seek only consistency and fairness. But after 5 years of lobbying, the government still collects about $2.5M per year from people who are already up for significant expense due to their medical condition.
Another disappointing rejection recently by the Treasurer Scott Morrison will not deter AAAF from pursuing a change to this unfair situation. We need the Alopecia Areata community, their families and friends to get behind our online petition. Together we can change this. Please click the link below and sign the petition. Please share this with all your friends.
