"The chairman of the Waipareira Trust says a payment to John Tamihere of
nearly $195,000 was partly for work the trust wanted him to achieve in
parliament."

So the Waipareira Trust have admitted bribing an MP - that's a lot more
serious than the tax issues. The scope of the enquiry into this should
be widened significantly.

Changed followup to nz.general/nz.politics. Totally OT for nz.comp, and
you should bloody well know better!

Depending on what that work was, it's more likely to be classed as
lobbying. You will probably find that the Trust wanted him to represent
their interests. Bribery is a crime, and accepting money from an
organisation to represent their interests is not illegal - Even if
you're an elected representative.
