Lib Dem policy has taken over a million of the lowest paid out of paying tax altogether and many millions more will pay £130 less a year, on top of the extra £200 per year saved last year. So a basic rate tax payer now pays £330 a year less each year thanks to the Liberal Democrats.
In Kingston Borough over 71,000 residents now pay less tax.
But Liberal Democrats are pressing Government to move even quicker to increase everyone’s personal tax allowance to £10,000. This would give every basic rate tax payer £60 more per month to better help hard working families in these difficult times.
It is right and fair that our lower paid workers should be given a helping
hand and be taxed the same as the higher paid. We have high costs of living in Kingston, so these reductions in tax are even more helpful and benefit everyone.
