Victoria at the Club with Professor Lisa Marriott
Professor Marriott will report on research findings showing that individuals in NZ are likely to receive different treatment in society depending on whether they are more or less advantaged. She will discuss the different treatments of tax evaders & welfare fraudsters in the justice system, together with a range of other situations where those who are poor receive different treatment from those who are wealthy. This includes the different treatments of those who hold tax debts & those who hold welfare debts; the different treatments of the partners of those who engage in welfare fraud & tax evasion; and the different approaches adopted for people who have tax debt or welfare debt & are suffering from serious hardship.
Lisa Marriott is a Professor of Taxation at Victoria University of Wellington’s School of Accounting & Commercial Law. Her research interests include social justice & inequality, as well as the behavioural impacts of taxation.
