Economist says tax proposal will lead to financial uncertainty

From Morning Report, 6:12 am on 18 July 2017

It's put out a proposal to fix Inland Revenue's social payment system. But there are concerns that the new system could mean weekly changes to how much a family is paid, bringing more financial uncertainty to already tight budgets.
