Trans-Tasman tax collection

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:25 pm on 1 October 2018

Information sharing between Australia and New Zealand allows for tax to be pursued when people cross over the ditch.

In 2017 the IRD collected $1.7 million in student loan repayments but only $10,000 in unpaid tax. This imbalance was revealed by an Official Information Request by tax analyst Terry Baucher. He joins Jesse to discuss IRD's collection approach.
