Taxation (KiwiSaver HomeStart and Remedial Matters) Bill

Introduced Dec 1 and received its first reading on a voice vote and was referred to Finance and Expenditure Committee with a report back date of April 28. The main proposals relate to the withdrawal of member tax credits for KiwiSaver members purchasing their first home, and corrections to the tax, social policy, and KiwiSaver treatment of income replacement payments for some veterans and other claimants. Reported back early on March 13 with minor amendments. Despite objections over the details and debate over whether it would have a positive effect, the bill passed its third reading on March 26 with general support.  Taxation (KiwiSaver HomeStart and Remedial Matters) Bill
