Vol. 430 No. 8

Written Answers. - Tax Bands.

Pat Cox


108 Mr. Cox asked the Minister for Finance the extent to which tax bands would need to be expanded in respect of single and married tax payers on the standard band of tax so as to reduce the numbers paying tax at the higher rate to 20 per cent of all those currently paying tax, in line with the Culliton report.

Assuming the enactment of this year's Finance Bill, the proposal contained in the question would result in an extension of the limits of the 27 per cent income tax band from £7,675 to £11,625 for single and widowed persons and from £15,350 to £23,250 for married persons.
