Corporate author: 

On 25 May 2017 the Government announced a $2 billion a year Family Incomes Package, designed to assist low and middle income earners with young families and higher housing costs. The Package will make changes to tax thresholds, Working for Families and the Accommodation Supplement from 1 April 2018.

Documents on this page are the advice the Government received from the Treasury (and in many cases Ministry of Social Development and Inland Revenue) regarding the development of this package. This includes reports and Cabinet papers covering the period from 5 September 2016 to 22 May 2017.

Related advice can be found on the Ministry of Social Development's website
