The National Budget for 2009/10 due to be announced on February 11 will hold "more of the same" for the average person, Ernst and Young said on Tuesday.
"It'll be a non-event budget for the average person with no surprises or upheavals," said director Corlie Hazell.
She based her forecast on previous pre-election budgets.
However, Graham Thompson, financial services analyst at Ernst and Young said the average person may not get as much tax relief as expected.
"The government might be hard-pressed when it comes to relief as revenue collections are going to slow," Thompson said.
"And the sin taxes will go up as they usually do - but this year they could go up with just a bit more force." Thompson said.
The 2010/11 budget would probably provide more for the average person as it was expected to introduce a broad-based social security system, including retirement savings, unemployment benefits, disability and death benefits for the formally employed.
