Is tax the ticking time bomb of our generation? That is the focus of this lecture hosted by the University of Auckland Law School.

Featuring a panel of tax experts, this seminar will discuss current and pressing tax issues such as tax and the property market, wealth tax, the government’s indebtedness, and the impending tax dilemma of higher marginal rates and keeping entity taxes the same.

The panelists will attempt to answer key questions around tax such as do we need more tax? Can tax help the runaway residential property market? And is reducing taxes on the wealthy a discredited theory?
