'Most NZers support capital gains tax' - Tax Justice Aotearoa

From Morning Report, 8:11 am on 8 April 2019

A coalition backing a capital gains tax is being launched at Parliament on Monday. Tax Justice Aotearoa says it wants a fairer tax system starting with a capital gains tax and focusing on all wealth as income. A capital gains tax on businesses, farms and second homes was among recommendations by the Tax Working Group, headed by Sir Michael Cullen. The government's response is expected some time this month. Paul Barber is from Tax Justice Aotearoa. He talks to Susie Ferguson.
