Plans to overhaul the council tax in Scotland will improve the “outdated
and unfair” system and leave England with the most “regressive” local
taxation in the UK, a new report today finds.

Rich Scots will lose out heavily in the changes being proposed by the
Scottish Government, while the poorest half of households won’t be so
badly affected. Labour and the Greens have also set out similar plans
for change which will bring an end to the near decade-long council tax
freeze.

The Council Tax can never be, "progressive" because it is not directly
linked to a persons ability to pay it. That is why the SNP shouted long
and hard about a need to replace it for so long!

Unfortunately, they have renaged in their promise to replace it!

You probably want to post the politics stuff in scot.politics if your
looking for a response. This group is more about kilts and shortbread,
and perceptions of those things from abroad. Most of the people reading
this group are in the US and Canada.
