Treasurer Curtis Pitt told Queensland Parliament said the move would "better secure the integrity of the state's revenue base".

"We will target an additional $10 million in revenue over three years from those taxpayers who try to avoid tax," he said.

"This includes those who incorrectly claim to be a not-for-profit organisation."
