Make Council Tax de-ductable against Income Tax

Comment 8th July 2010

Presently, Council Tax payments are not de-ductable against Income tax .

So the tax payer is paying a direct taxation,-  twice, – on a portion of thier income. 

– Council Tax invoices are issued at the start of a tax year – for the year ahead – Income tax calculations (for the same year) make no allowance for these direct tax payments already made – Even though issued from two seperate arms of the state, both taxes are direct & the person has no option but to pay.

Why does this matter?

Current practice could  be seen as an act of double counting, and Illegal.
