New Zealand Parliament Pāremata Aotearoa

Petition of Gomez Figo: Remove Tax Exemptions for Religious Charities

Published date: 30 Jan 2020

Petition request

That the House of Representatives take action to remove tax exemptions for churches and organisations registered as religious charities.

Petition reason

I believe that these organisations are cults that take advantage of tax loopholes, that churches are now multi-billion dollar businesses in Aotearoa, and that other small businesses in New Zealand are closing down because of the money power these cults have. I believe they are monsters that buy property and make other investments that mean our local businesses can’t compete with them. I think the Government needs to act as this is very unfair.
