  • For the top 2% there will be a slight rate increase – but only on personal income earned over $180,000.
  • Someone earning $200,000 a year would pay an extra $23 a week under this plan.
  • Labour will not make any further increases to income tax next term.
  • We have already committed to not raising fuel taxes for the next three years.
  • The company tax rate is not changing, giving businesses continuity and certainty.
  • We are also making sure that Kiwi businesses are operating on a level playing field, by closing tax loopholes so multinational corporations pay their fair share.
