The kindest tax cut of all : Te Tare no tak'e

Good news for Kiwis today and another sign of a massive change in direction for the National Government when compared to the losers of the last 9 years.

Up to 250 jobs at the Inland Revenue department will go. A very small cut by any means because the department employs more than 5000 but nevertheless a good start to the year.

What this means in real terms is that Kiwis, especially businesses, will be able to operate their lives with less interference from these sorts of people.

That clearly means more time spent on actual work rather than IRD paperwork and as a consequence of that more productivity, something New Zealand desperately needs.

This cut is a reflection of this Government's emphasis on spending less taxpayer money and extracting less of that tax from their pockets in the first place.

It is only a good thing and any criticism is mainly from those that want to see higher taxes, more state involvement and constant interference in our lives.

My only criticism is that the cut was about 1000 too low.
