It's this sort of thing that makes me wonder why I regularly send so much of my meagre store of hard-earned money to the IRD. To me, it's a huge amount but compared to most people (who earn a lot more than me) it's probably a pittance. However, while they're busy demanding money (with menaces) from most of us, they're giving it away to others in spades.

Explain to some poor widowed single-mother why she's paying tax on her benefit while some rich-as South Island farmer is benefitting to the tune of tens of millions of dollars due to the state's generosity/incompetence.
