Susan St John & Terry Baucher - the housing crisis, taxation policy and restoring equity

 Registration is closed for this event

In conjunction with The Policy Observatory, AUTAUTPO.jpg

The bright line test has been extended to ten years. Tax deductibility for the cost of a mortgage for landlords is to be removed. These steps are a start, but there is more to be done. In Susan and Terry, we have two advocates for making the tax system in NZ more fair, equitable and capable of raising the funds needed to enable the country to support the wellbeing and infrastructure necessary for a good society. The session will be a significant contribution to what the post covid settings should be for a prosperous and fair NZ.
