Perhaps Sunny hasn't heard of Unite union

Sunny Kaushal has really taken to Facebook as he campaigns to come second in Pakuranga this election.

I wonder if Sunny has heard of tax cheats Matt McCarten and the Unite union.

    A bit unrelated but most of the “tax cheats” I know are tradies who are decidedly lower middle class (at least socially…) and probably vote labour. Those on high incomes such as Doctors employed by DHBs have very limited options for avoiding tax now the LAQC is gone (thanks to National).

    Well generally to them anyone who isnt left wing to them is not paying enough taxes.

    Oh yeah, that’s right, because Sunny Kaushal, Labour candidate for Pakuranga, is accountable for Mana Party candidates!

    Wait a second… !!!

    Point one is that McCarten isn’t a Mana Party candidate; he’s the “machine” behind the scenes. Quite by coincidence (spot the irony), his 18 months of tax evasion started a year before the 2008 election, and ended six months after it. What might have have spent an extra $275k on in that period, one must wonder?

    Point two is this: Employers have a fundamental responsibility to back tax on behalf of their employees. Can you imagine the fuss that McCarten would make if an employer of Unite members withheld tax payments over an 18 month period? McCarten is even worse; he withheld the tax of Unite union staff!

    Sunny Kaushal is quite right to be denouncing tax cheats. WO is quite right to be reminding readers that Matt McCarten is among that number.

    @Tim:

    Point three is this: you only need to push the send button once.

    @Inventory2:

    Tax “cheats” are people that refuse to let the government steal from them. They should be applauded, not denounced.

    McCarten’s problem is that he is a hypocrite: he practices self-defence but promotes (goverment) theft.

    Sunny, How about, Labour will… release the expert panel advise on their CG tax idea. Maybe they said ‘can it’ ? ;-)

    Sunny is talking about avoidance and evasion, whereas McCarten actually never passed on taxes (& presumably Kiwisaver deductions) belonging to employees. Imagine the anger if a lawyer held hundreds of thousands of dollars in trust and didn’t pass on the money to the rightful owner!
