Fine Gael TD says Budget will help make work pay
Tax changes due to come into effect in the New Year thanks to Budget 2019 will mean real savings for people and families all across Ireland. according to Fine Gael TD for Dublin Fingal, Alan Farrell.
He said: ‘This year’s reductions in PAYE and USC are a continuation of a programme of tax reform implemented by Fine Gael since the economic crash. We have long argued that workers enter the higher rate of income tax at too low a level of income and we know that families deserve sustainable wages.
The positive changes to people’s take home pay have been significant over the last five years.
The Fine Gael TD said: ‘We have steadily increased the Earned Income Tax Credit for the self-employed over the last few years in order to redress this balance. We know that small and medium business owners are the backbone of job creation in communities right across the North County.’
