As readers will know I co-founded the Taxpayers’ Union just over five years ago. I was interested to read in a newsletter the following stats for the union in 2018.
- 70% of submissions tesponding to the Tax Working Group proposals came from NZTU members and supporters
- Staff did 162 radio interviews and 21 television interviews
- Seven published reports
- Made the front page of a NZ newspaper 27 times
2019 is looking to be an even bigger year. If the Government tries to bring in a Capital Gains Tax as a revenue grab, I expect a huge battle on that front.
