Stop giving tax money to charity.

Comment 3rd July 2010

The tax system provides an incentive for people to to give money to charity through tax relief for higher rate payers and allowing charities to claim money from the government through gift aid.  It seems absurd to be looking at putting people out of work with cuts because we don't have enough money while we are giving money the likes of the dogs trust.

Why does this matter?

If we stop making these payouts to charity and cut the tax relief they offer people the country will spend less and gain more in tax revenue.

This will also be a step along the road to simplifying an overly complex area of the tax system, around which a great deal of tax avoidance activity takes place.
