As recently as February this year Phil Goff ruled out a CGT!
Labour leader Phil Goff said this morning that his party had not considered a capital gains tax as part of its tax policy.
Q: Have you completely ruled out a capital gains tax?
A: Yep we haven’t considered that as part of our policy.
So in February Phil Goff was categorically ruling out a capital gains tax and yet just 5 months later he flip flops and Kiwis are now staring down the barrel of across the board capital gains taxes.
