The income of essential service workers should be tax free throughout government lockdown

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


New Zealand is about to enter alert level four in response to Covid-19, which requires nationwide lockdown. This lockdown excludes essential services. As a Registered Nurse I am required to work throughout this lockdown period along with many other essential service workers. I believe essential service workers should be given a tax break throughout this period for their efforts in allowing the country to still operate while risking their own health and potential exposure to Covid-19. This tax free period would also allow essential service workers to help financially support their families while many face the prospect of reduced incomes and hardship. Please help support the people who will be working hard to ensure your health is looked after, you have food on the table and that NZ doesn't fall off the face of the planet by signing this petition.
