The Minister of Revenue David Parker has introduced the Taxation (Income Tax Rate and Other Amendments) Bill. It contains four main measures:

  • introducing a new top personal income tax rate of 39%
  • introducing increased disclosure requirements for trusts
  • increasing the Minimum Family Tax Credit threshold for the 2020–21 tax year, and
  • clarifying more generally that Inland Revenue can request information solely for tax policy development purposes.
