So what does this mean for New Zealand?
Estimates by us, shown in the table below, indicate that if all the employed people in these regions claimed the overpaid tax that may be owing to them, over $1 billion could be injected into the economy. This includes over $340 million into the Auckland region alone.
|Region||Number of employed people*||Possible regional tax refund total $**|
