Summary: An enormous amount of correspondence from readers indicates that people with $2m in super do not see themselves as rich and oppose a tax on superannuation income above $100,000. But a number of readers support a tax on those who have more than $5m in super. Readers also say an attack on dividend imputation benefits would be an enormous blow. Subscribers are split on the question of lump sums, and some are opposed to negative gearing.
Key take-out: There is extreme hostility in the retirement community to retrospective changes to superannuation.
Key beneficiaries: General investors, SMSF trustees and superannuation accountholders. Category: Superannuation
