Tomorrow, Tomorrow, Just Wait Until Tomorrow
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“Are tax cuts tomorrow, or in the never never on Planet National?” Asks Taxpayers’ Union spokesman Jordan Williams. Prime Minister Bill English’s suggestion that any tax cuts would have to wait until 2018 to be implemented, rather than introduced on 1 Julyas part of Budget 2017, is totally inconsistent with the National Party’s apparent principle of limited government.
“If National don’t deliver tax cuts now, it is unlikely they ever will,” says Williams. “With NZ First or the Maori Party likely to hold the balance of power post-election, pushing back the implementation of tax relief will almost certainly see a repeat of National’s previous cancellation of tax relief.”
“Tax cuts are always tomorrow under National. With healthy Government books, higher tax revenues, and tax thresholds not being shifted with inflation since 2010, tax relief in 2017 is both affordable and prudent.”
