No income tax hike under Labour. No doubt some will be surprised/disappointed/disbelieving.

 

 

 

 

 



That article also said wages are stagnant and National ruled out tax cuts.

Quote: 'She also welcomed confirmation from National it would not make further tax cuts in the near future.'

 

 

 

IMHO it's a bit of a stretch to call them tax cuts anyway...  All that's happening is that the two lowest brackets are being raised slightly.  (negating the bracket creep of the past 9yrs for everyone except the top bracket payers)

 

 

 

The rates themselves are remaining untouched.

Agree. They should do a very small threshold adjustment every year to keep Joe Average Wage on the same tax percentage, CPI wise

Its just a new tax to cover the costs, I believe they run a a loss. Tourists expect to pay everywhere, and the tourist boards seem ok with it
