Tax grossly un­fair

Matamata Chronicle - - Opinion/news -

Mata­mata-pi­ako Dis­trict Coun­cil is propos­ing to in­tro­duce pan tax (charges) to com­mer­cial premises to en­sure they are be­ing fair to res­i­den­tial ratepay­ers.

The pro­posed sys­tem is grossly un­fair and we would like the coun­cil to re­con­sider how they bring this in to en­sure it is fair to all busi­nesses.

They just want to count the pans re­gard­less of how many flushes they have which puts clubs, the­atres, accommodation providers at a huge dis­ad­van­tage when put up against very high users that only have two or three pans, for ex­am­ple ser­vice sta­tions, fast food restau­rants, cafes, bars
