  1. A Brace says:

    As the owner of a fairly expensive property I still feel that its time council taxes were updated. How many properties have been extended in the past 20+ years? Surely if all council tax was reviewed and updated, there would be an enormous increase in the money raised.
    Yes, I know everyone would moan, but after the first shock everything would revert to normal. The funds we need have to come from somewhere.

      We need to raise the money somewhere, but I think that (1) we need to reduce the size of the state and so the amount of money that we need to raise and (2) the only justifiable taxes are income tax and VAT.

      Property shouldn’t be taxed at all. Taxing one kind of asset but not another makes no sense.
