Treasurer Scott Morrison says the government will consider every possible tax reform to improve Australia's budget challenges.

Treasurer Scott Morrison is open to any tax reform proposal that will reduce reliance on federal government handouts.

"It's not about cuts, it's about control," Mr Morrison told 3AW on Monday.

"Anything that is going to help Australians work, save and invest, I am open to."

In a separate interview, the treasurer hinted at changes in the marginal tax rate to encourage people to work more.

He said young people needed incentives to get off welfare and into work.

"If young people want to work more, then our tax system has to reward them for doing that," Mr Morrison told 2GB radio.
