The Taxpayers’ Union is encouraging political and government insiders to ‘dob in’ examples of government waste and extravagance. Experience of taxpayer groups overseas suggests that many of the best tips come from within government, particularly bureaucrats frustrated with waste and inefficiency. We put the government – politicians, officials and taxpayer-funded groups on notice that taxpayer money should treated with care. The Taxpayers’ Union guarantees the anonymity of all members of the public who submit information via the tip line.
Though we are new, we already know of examples where bureaucrats are not respecting the hard earned income of the New Zealanders who pay for their spending decisions through taxes. Over the coming weeks we will be exposing some of those examples.

We are encouraging insiders to help. Maybe you're a respected official, frustrated with waste you see in a department. If so, please visit our tip line page - we guarantee the confidentiality of all out tip line sources.
A copy of our press release is available here. You can find out more about on the what we stand for and a Q&A pages available at www.taxpayers.org.nz.
