Voters are divided on whether the government should cut taxes over the next year, a poll shows.

Of those questioned in the One News Colmar-Brunton poll, 50 per cent said yes, 41 per cent said no and nine per cent didn't know.

Prime Minister John Key has said the government wants to cut taxes and will think about it next year.

"More people are saying they want a tax cut than don't," he told One News when he was asked to comment on the poll.

"I think that indicates that New Zealanders work really hard for the money they get each week."

Labour leader Andrew Little said people wanted taxes to be as low as possible, but they also wanted the government to care for those who were vulnerable.

The Colmar-Brunton poll usually questions about 1000 voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 per cent.
