“New Minister Todd McClay will have his work cut out catching the egg that is IRD before it hits the floor.
The 2014/15 surplus is not ‘wafer thin’, it comes from massaging from the numbers, rather than growth, Labour’s Revenue and Associate Finance Spokesperson David Cunliffe said.

The Prime Minister is further distancing himself from Revenue Minister and United Future Leader Peter Dunne as IRD’s customer service gets worse, Labour’s Revenue Spokesperson David Cunliffe says.

“In the past 24 hours “very senior” National Party sources have told news media their aim is to shift the heat on the tax onto Dunne.
National’s pathetic car park tax is running into such overwhelming opposition Peter Dunne should drop it, says Labour’s Revenue spokesperson David Cunliffe.
“Everyone from ACT to the Property Council to unions has united against this petty parking tax. This opposition shows how desperate and penny-pinching this Government is.
