Repeal the Taniwha Tax

Taniwha Tax Property Check

Yesterday we launched a briefing paper on the Taniwha Tax - a little known regulatory tax affecting the property rights of 18,000 Aucklanders.

It is a shocking cultural and spiritual tax provision that has been enacted by Auckland Council.

And it attempts to set a dangerous precedent for other councils throughout the country.

Will you stand with us against Auckland Council's stealth tax?

Auckland Council should repeal its 'Cultural Impact Assessment' requirements and abolish the Taniwha tax.
