Championing Value For Money From Every Tax Dollar

Inflation Tax Calculator

New Zealanders are struggling with the sky-rocketing cost of living. A tax reset that adjusts income tax brackets for inflation from the time they were introduced would provide desperately needed tax relief and put more money in your pocket.

Enter your annual income into our tax calculator below to see how much additional tax you are paying due to inflation and how much you would save with our proposed tax changes.

Here is a summary of what income tax brackets would look like with our proposed changes:
