Labor's franking credit reforms are shaping up to be one of the more divisive policies this election.
The idea has angered some retirees in the Sturt electorate in Adelaide's east, who say they'll be thousands of dollars out of pocket and if not for the policy, may have considered voting Labor.

Trying to get your head around Labor's Franking Credit Policy?
Here is a simple guide to help you understand the small but crucial change Labor has proposed to make!
How Franking Credits Work:
Step 1: You buy some shares in a company.
Step 2: The company makes a profit.
Step 3: The company pays the government tax.
Step 4: As a shareholder you earn a dividend, which is basically a fraction of that company’s profit.
Since that dividend is essentially income, you would normally have to pay tax on it — just like you pay tax on your salary.
BUT... because that dividend is coming out of company profit, which has already been taxed by the government, something called dividend imputation kicks in to avoid tax being paid twice on what is essentially the same bucket of money.
Step 5: You get a franking credit. A franking credit is kind of an “I owe you” from the government that acknowledges this extra income you just got has already been taxed. You can trade it in at tax time for a reduction in your tax liability.
This system has been around since Paul Keating introduced it in the 1980s.
Up until now this is all fair enough. But;
Step 6: In 2000 former treasurer Peter Costello changed the system to say that not only can you offset your wages – but you also get the imputation credit paid as a cash refund.
The ALP policy is only to reverse Step 6.
✅ People still get dividends.
✅ They still can claim it against tax if they’ve paid tax.
✅ If they haven’t paid tax they still have the “imputation credit” registered against them in case they pay tax in the future.
They just don’t get the imputation credit as a taxpayer funded cash payment anymore. Plus, if you're on a part or full pension, this change will not impact you!
The policy would save taxpayers $5 billion a year - more than the annual federal budget currently allocates to public school funding!
