The Green Taliban hate cars…unless they are electric cars full of rare earth metals mined from third world countries leaving a toxic sludge behind in a wrecked environment…but hey…electric cars.
Now they want to embrace electric cars and are proposing their second ever tax break to encourage more car use…think about that for a minute.
The Green Party has added a second tax break for businesses to its manifesto in a bid to boost electric car use in New Zealand.
The party announced today it would scrap fringe benefit tax when businesses purchased electric cars for their fleet.
The tax is applied to any perks which staff receive as part of their employment, including motor vehicles.
It was estimated that the proposed tax break would cut the upfront costs of an electric car by 36 per cent.
