Contribute to our Tax White Paper Submission

The Future Party will be making a submission to the Tax White Paper. The focus will be primarily on removing the 50% discount on Capital Gains Tax (that allows wealthy investors to get a lower tax rate) and Land Value Tax. If you would like to help us write, format, and promote our submission, please let us know at [email protected]

We'll be working online using Google Docs. You can see the structure and the main points in our very early draft document here. Please feel free to comment on this document. We are also aggregating important links in this document
