A FAIRER AND CHEAPER WAY OF FUNDING LOCAL GOVERNMENT

What we're proposing

Under our proposal, local taxpayers would pay an average rate of 3% (after their £12,500 personal allowance), saving households £900 year on average.

Fairer Taxation

Unlike council tax, local income tax is based on your ability to pay. This means those earning less will pay less, while those with broader shoulders pay more.

Locally Set Rates

Local Councillors that you elect will set the rate of tax, making them more accountable to you and your community.

Public Service Grants

We believe adult social care, police, fire and health should be funded by a grant, not burdened on the local taxpayer.

Cheaper Tax

Local income tax would save households £900 per year on average.

IT'S REALLY SIMPLE

How It Works

1.

Your local authority sets a tax rate

Typically 3%, ranging from 0.50% up to a maximum of 10%. Local Councillors that you elect will set the rate of tax.

2.

They inform HMRC, who tax you

HMRC holds data on your main residence, so no need for you to do anything.

 

Local income tax is still payable on holiday and second homes, and would need to be declared.

3.

You pay directly out of your pay packet

No need to change your direct debit every year because just like national income tax and National Insurance contributions, local income tax is taken directly from your pay packet every month.

Change is only possible with your support
