Over at Red Alert Stuart Nash asks whether the details of property developers being investigated by the IRD will be released in the same way Basher Bennett released the benefit details of two solo mums.
Bloody good point.
I’d also like to know if the details of the fifty percent of the richest 100 people who are avoiding paying the top tax rates will be released in the same way.
I’d really like to know if they include members of the Business Round Table or any other group that has publicly lobbied for lower taxes for the rich.
Come to think of it John Key and Bill English both have family trusts. I’d also like to know what kind of income these trusts earned and how much tax was paid on them.
I mean if we’re going to talk trusts and taxes then surely we should follow basher’s example and make sure we “round out the debate” by getting all of the facts on the table.
