Hardworking Tax Payers Need A Break


“Hardworking taxpayers have spent the first four months
and 10 days of 2021 working to hand over every cent
they’ve earned to Grant Robertson,” says ACT Leader
David Seymour.

“Today is ‘Tax Freedom Day’
according to accounting firm Baker Tilly Staples Rodway, who
calculates the date based on the country’s tax bill for
the year being paid before you start pocketing your salary
or wages.

“In 2016, Tax Freedom Day fell on May 1st.
Five years later, it’s been pushed out by 10 days. New
Zealanders are spending more than a third of their year
working just to pay Grant Robertson.

“This
Government has piled on taxes and costs to middle New
Zealanders. We have lumped future generations with a
mountain of debt to pay back. You can expect to see Tax
Freedom Day getting later and later.

“ACT will
release its Alternative Budget tomorrow. Everything this
Labour Government does is either about taxing and
redistributing, or dividing us against each other. There is
a better way which ACT will reveal
tomorrow.”
