The week's tax news in one handy summary.
New Zealand Tax
- Paul Drum the head of policy for CPA Australia with some reasonable guesses on what's coming | What the tax working group has in store for business
- Hmmm. As if there's not enough anticipation around the TWG interim report | Capital gains tax in doubt, decision seen too political for tax working group
- I'll be talking to Duncan Garner about what the tax working group might be thinking about capital gains tax at 7.10 tomorrow morning on the AM show
- Here's me speaking to Kate Hawkesby earlier this morning | Capital gains tax to be raised in Tax Working Group report
- As I said to Kate Hawkesby on @NewstalkZB self-interest could not be ruled out as a reason for opposing capital gains tax. This piece highlights that issue.
- But as I say here, that doesn't mean landlords are off the hook, a land tax could be the alternative | Capital Gains Tax looks less likely
- About as surprising as finding out the sun rises each day. What is interesting is that the comments so far are largely in favour of CGT | Property investors: Capital gains tax wouldn't work
- A pretty classic case of arguing the difficulties laced with self-interest | Judith Collins: Capital gains tax will hit the vulnerable
- Well the end of round one, this seems destined for the Supreme Court | Eric Watson tax case nears conclusion
- Can still expect to see the interim report discuss the issue of CGT | Tax Working Group will not recommend whether or not New Zealand should get a broad-based capital gains tax, in an interim report
- Will be interesting to see the Tax Working Group's view on the issue | Sugar tax would work, PM Jacinda Ardern told in briefing from John Potter, Ministry of Health science advisor
- My thoughts on whether the Tax Working Group will ultimately pull back from recommending a CGT and why if it does the issue will come back
- The issue of bright-line compliance is probably being handled by the IRD's property compliance programme | IRD chases students while speculators go free
United States Tax
- Harsh. But fair | ‘It’s not Ireland’s fault US tax law was written by someone on acid’
- One of the issues the TWG will address is the taxation of multinationals & the international pressure for lower corporate tax rates which I believe will increase over the next 10 years | Corporate taxation 'road map' turns Irish system upside down
