Abstract:
The current approach to administering the taxation laws by the New Zealand Inland Revenue is founded on the responsive regulation model. Under this model, the administrators' approach reflects the posture adopted by the taxpayer. Thus, the focus is on extending assistance to compliant taxpayers and punishing recalcitrant taxpayers. It is thought that this model most effectively encourages voluntary compliance by taxpayers and thereby enhances the efficiency of tax administration.
