Hockey negative gearing”

The federal government introduced negative gearing rules to combat the rising costs of land prices, including a crackdown on properties with losses exceeding $2 million. It has since withdrawn the rules. The move has caused property investors to feel i경주출장샵 경주출장안마ncreasingly insecure about what they can afford.
