Question for the day...

...comes from G-Man.
How many times did National cut tax (any tax—income tax, GST, anything) when they were in power between 1975 and 1984 and 1990 and 1999?
Good question. I believe it's what's known as 'rhetorical.'

  1. I believe it might be three times for income tax. Once under Muldoon and twice under Bolger/Birch - more than offset by the increases.

    Land and estate duties were abolished under Bolger/Richardson/Birch, and that's about it.
