From: Ronald van der Horst

Dear Inland Revenue Department,
With regard to;
Income Tax Act 2004
AA 1 Purpose of Act
The main purposes of this Act are—
(a) to define, and impose tax on, net income:
(b) to impose obligations concerning tax:
(c) to set out rules for calculating tax and for satisfying the obligations imposed.

My question is this;
By "whose" or "what" authority is a tax imposed?

Dear Tony Ponoghue (Commissioners Correspondence),
Thank you for your reply and the information contained there-in.
Sadly, though close, the information provided was not the information sought. Happily it has has provided an opportunity to request again, perhaps with a little more clarity on my part.

With regard to; Judge Thomas (Penlington in Warren v Police 9 Feb 2000, High Court Hamilton, AP 133/99:)
1. The New Zealand Parliament is empowered to make legislation.
Request: By what or whose authority is The New Zealand Parliament empowered to make legislation?

2.The Acts of Parliament do not derive their authority from the Treaty of Waitangi or the Declaration of Independence.
Request: From what or whose authority do the Acts of Parliament derive their authority?

3. The Acts of Parliament are binding on all persons within the territory of New Zealand, pakeha and Maori.
Request: By what or whose authority are the Acts of Parliament binding on all persons within the territory of New Zealand, pakeha and Maori?

Though seeming many; they are in essence one request- assuming one authority.

Thank you once again,
Kind Regards,
Ronald van der Horst
