Over at Kiwiblog, DPF has helpfully posted a table showing tax rates when National's first round of tax cuts kicks in on Wednesday.
Readers will note that the greatest percentage cut will come for those earning between $20,000 and $30,000. That makes a mockery of claims from the left that these are "tax cuts for the rich".
Of course, these rates apply to those who are not in receipt of Working for Families. We are delighted that National has finally recognised this group, of which we are a part. Although our children have lived with their mother for many years, we have supported them financially, physically and emotionally. We have paid our Child Support, a not-inconsiderable sum dutifully for more years than we care to remember. And until October last year, just before the election, we had no relief whatsoever from the Labour government.
Thanks National - another promise kept!
