Tax Principles and Te Tiriti o Waitangi

In April 2022, Minister Parker announced that a Tax Principles Bill would be drafted. With the prospect of a legislative framework that sets out tax principles for Aotearoa New Zealand, precisely what principles should be included in the Bill and how they are interpreted is now wide open for discussion. Join us at Tax on Tuesdays as we begin to explore the possibilities.

Register now to the second of four talks on Principled Taxation: What Matters Most?

Tax Principles and Te Tiriti o Waitangi, Dr. Matthew Scobie
1:00 – 2:00pm, Tuesday 13 December
Government Buildings Lecture Theatre 3
Pipitea Campus, Victoria University of Wellington.

also available on Zoom

How might the articles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi inform the design of our tax system? To answer this question, and think about the future of taxation in these lands, we need to be wary of the history of taxation in these lands. Matthew Scobie will explore a brief history of taxation and Te Tiriti before turning to possible principles that might embed Te Tiriti into the tax system.
