SIR MICHAEL CULLEN INTERVIEW CLICK HERE 

Tax rates on Māori authorities are likely to remain the same following a review.

The interim report of the Tax Working Group led by former finance minister Sir Michael Cullen says the 17.5 percent rate reflects the most common marginal tax rate of the economic owners of Māori authorities.

As the Māori median income is about $32,000 a year, that’s still relevant.

It recommended subsidiaries of Māori authorities be taxed at the same rate, to remove current inefficiencies such as the subsidiaries being structured as limited partnerships.

Sir Michael says the group is still working on how capital gains should be treated.

It is not recommending changes to GST such as exempting some items, and as other measures will be more effective in supporting those on low incomes.

OPINION - Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: TVNZ Journalist Jehan Casinader, has written a remarkably shallow evaluation of the corrosive Orange Tamariki child uplift programme and has bewilderingly concluded the problem is Māori, not the policy.
