Stop charging VAT on excise duty.

Comment 7th July 2010

Currently the British Government charge excise duty on all types of fuel.  In addition to this the British Government charge VAT on the same products and an proportion of this is charged on the Excise Duty thereby taxing a tax.  Whilst this obviously brings in a significant amount of money for HM Treasury surely it is unjust to TAX a TAX.

Why does this matter?

Whilst this idea is obviously not going to be popular with HM Government or HM Treasury it seems unethical that any government should be allowed to introduce a tax and then tax the tax.
