The Lib Dem policy of no tax on the first £10,000 you earn is at the heart of the Coalition Agreement to be delivered by 2015.
We’ve already taken the first steps to delivering this – from April most local people will be paying £27.50 a month less in income tax.
The full £10,000 allowance will put £60 a month back in the pockets of ordinary people. It will take over three million low paid workers out of tax altogether.
These savings can’t come too soon for families in Glasgow. That’s why the Liberal Democrats are campaigning to bring forward the introduction of the £10,000 allowance.
Please sign the petition to persuade George Osborne to fast track the Lib Dem policy to increase the income tax threshold to £10,000 in the next budget, and hence take thousands more people out of tax and put £700 back in people’s pockets.
There are measures that can be taken to pay for this including the clamp down on tax avoidance and a mansion tax.
Please support this and help the Lib Dems to help the lowest paid and middle income workers in this country.
