Winston playing favourites with gst
Tax dodgers, GST on food top NZ First hit list The New Zealand Herald - 21/07/2014
New Zealand First would take GST off basic food items and rates bills and would target tax dodgers to fund the expensive policies, leader Winston Peters said yesterday.
But both proposals have already been tagged as difficult to implement.
Taxpayers Union executive director Jordan Williams said he welcomed Mr Peters' recognition that New Zealand families were over-taxed, "but introducing new complexity to GST won't reduce the burden".
