Please tell me I am wrong and that your intent is not to tax Mum and Dad for owning their own home?
The issue is clearly the investors making a poultice of money from multiple home investments. The private home owner who has diligently saved to provide security for their family should be encouraged to do so. In my case I have elderly parents reliant on us providing accommodation. Your policy assumes that just because we are home owners we can afford your tax. Get real Gareth, you had my respect taxing the property investors who are getting coached by people like property masters. I do not support you taxing my family home assuming this is your intent. I didn't work my backside off to own my own my home with a granny flat that supports my aging parents and children only for you to come along and tax my security. I am particularly appalled it seems that you expect aging home home owners who cannot afford your tax and expect them to take out a mortgage. If this is how you expect to get votes from Middle NZ, think again because so far I am unimpressed. We need a center party leader that rewards hard working middle NZ, encourages businesses to thrive and helps the under privileged to get a leg up. Penalising Mum and Dad home owners who work damn hard just seems unfair. Is this your intent?
Do you like this suggestion?
