The wrong direction
It is fair to say that the NZ tax system is messed up, but I do not think your current tax proposal is the right answer. If you tax home owners, the average owner will not be able to afford your proposed tax. If you tax properties owned by landlords, they will not be paying the tax. Sure it will come out of their bank account, but they will just increase rent to cover it. So the very people you are trying to help will suffer higher rent. Also stop talking about increasing wages. All that does is increase the cost of living. That doesn't help the country at all. Firstly the poorer among us drop further below the poverty line, and it also effects our biggest earner, tourism. Already people complain how expensive NZ is. If you want to make a big change you need to decrease the cost of living.
