Two reports released today both make it clear the government is overtaxing New Zealanders, says ACT Leader David Seymour.
“The Finance Minister has once again boasted about how much revenue the Government is collecting, with Budget surplus running $700 million ahead of forecasts,” says Mr Seymour.
“Of course, a government surplus is actually a taxpayer deficit. It shows that the government is taxing New Zealanders more than it needs to. ACT says this money belongs to the taxpayer and it’s time to give it back.
