Reduction to ACC Levies a Good Start

MEDIA RELEASE

Reduction to ACC Levies a Good Start

1 APRIL 2014
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Reacting to today's reduction of ACC levies which, according to ACC Minister Judith Collins, will save New Zealanders $387 million per year, Jordan Williams, Executive Director of the Taxpayers’ Unionsays:

ACC levies are just one of many taxes which ultimately land on kiwi households. Today's reduction is a good start but there is a lot more to be done to ease New Zealand's heavy tax burden.”

"As the Government moves back into surplus Wellington's priority should be to let taxpayers keep more of their money. If not, the election is likely to turn into a taxpayer funded lolly scramble."

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
