CIOT: LITRG response to the Budget

“As from 6th April 2008 millions of people that the government class as being “in poverty” are going to be asked to pay more income tax than they did in 2007/08. At the same time many groups on low incomes will have their lives complicated by new obscure rules at a time when HMRC has no hope of devoting the manpower to explain those rules to those who need to know. It does seem perverse to describe these features as being part of a fairness and simplicity package.”
