Scots in the dark over tax pow­ers

The Scotsman - - News Digest -

The pub­lic is strug­gling to make sense of Holy­rood’s new tax pow­ers, an ex­pert claimed, as a poll re­vealed 84 per cent want more in­for­ma­tion about how the charges are set.

The re­search, com­mis­sioned by the Char­tered In­sti­tute of Tax­a­tion, re­vealed that three out of five peo­ple find the re­la­tion­ship be­tween Scot­tish and Uk-wide taxes dif­fi­cult to un­der­stand.

Two-thirds of peo­ple – 66 per cent – are un­aware that both Holy­rood and West­min­ster are re­spon­si­ble for in­come tax.
