If you worked in any of these countries, you could be due a Tax Refund

NZ Tax Cuts Start April 1st

New Zealand is one of the few countries actually reducing taxes in the global financial crisis and for Kiwi Pig and New Zealand Moneytaxpayers these changes come into effect next week on April 1st.

Once the 08/09 tax year ends on March 31st the earnings threshold for the middle-income tax rate of 21% will be increased from $41k to $48K - which means more middle income earners will pay less tax on their earnings. The 33% tax rate will now apply to those earning between $48K and $70K.

The end of the tax year also means that New Zealand tax payers can apply for an NZ tax refund from the 08/09 tax year.
