In November last year, the Government announced the formation of a working group to examine the Structure, Fairness and Balance of the tax system. Raising tax rates, inheritance tax or any form of taxation on the family home or the land under it was, however,  out of scope.


The Group was asked to provide an interim report to Ministers in September 2018 and a final report by February 2019.


Sir Michael Cullen will discuss the findings of the interim report and the challenges faced by the  Group in their consideration.




Sir Michael Cullen was a Member of Parliament for 28 years and held a wide range of ministerial portfolios in government – most notably as Deputy Prime Minister from 2001-2008 and Minister of Finance from 1999-2008.


Since retiring from Parliament in 2009 he has held a number of governance positions, including as chair of New Zealand Post from 2010-2016.


Sir Michael is the chair of the Tax Working Group.
