Fine Gael TD says Bud­get will help make work pay

Fingal Independent - - OPINION -

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.’
