AGE Concern New Zealand chief executive Robyn Scott says the organisation has agreed to partner in the Fair Tax for Savers Campaign. Partnering alongside Consumer NZ, the Financial Services Council and the Taxpayers’ Union, Mrs Scott says: “The over-taxation of savings is a major issue for our members and the older people we support.” While almost one in four Kiwi adults has investments in term deposits, for those aged over 65 the proportion is more than two in every four. Income from term deposits is an important supplement for many older people, allowing them to achieve a more comfortable retirement, than can be afforded on NZ Superannuation alone. Mrs Scott says: “Paying income tax on what is essentially compensation for inflation, is both unfair and a discouragement to those saving for a more comfortable retirement. “Someone with $100,000 in term deposits will be overtaxed by more than $19,000, if they roll over their term deposits throughout a 25-year retirement. “That would be enough for an older person to have their home made more accessible as well as a trip to visit grandchildren overseas. “Even if you have only $10,000 invested for five years, you would receive $389 more income if you were not being taxed on the inflation compensating part of your interest income. “Even $389 is enough to cover a return airfare to go to your granddaughter’s wedding, or to go to the medical specialist appointment you have been putting off because of the cost,” says Mrs Scott. Age Concern is also interested in the tax treatment of the KiwiSaver scheme. Mrs Scott says KiwiSaver will help many more future retirees achieve a comfortable income in retirement. “Over-taxation of interest earned on interest reinvested over 40 years in KiwiSaver will make that more difficult. “We consider the over-taxation of KiwiSaver earnings an impediment for the retirement prospects of younger New Zealanders saving for retirement.” Worries about interest tax While every effort is made to run the notices, volume and space restrictions may mean events will not run. Where publication of a notice is time-critical, groups should consider paying for a classified advertisement to ensure placement.
