DON'T tax the family home - the money to pay that off has already had taxes paid on it! It's taken years and years of hard bloody slog to own our own home ... and it's the Kiwi way that if you do that hard hard slog then no one in government better touch it no matter how fair you think it might be. We are not rich. We have spent money replacing the roof, recladding to replace the old hardiplank, putting in new drainage, insulating, double glazing etc etc... so what looks like on paper that our house has made capital gain if we sold it is untrue as we have put huge amounts of money into caring for our home.
