Stop part of my UK taxes being handed to Scottish government

From 6 April 2016 people who live in Scotland will pay a proportion of their income tax to the Scottish government. This is a change from the current system, where all income tax is paid to the UK government to fund spending across the UK.

All the main rates of income tax for Scottish taxpayers will be reduced by ten pence and this reduction will be replaced by the Scottish Rate of Income Tax.

The rate has yet to be announced. If it is set at ten pence, then income tax rates for Scottish taxpayers will stay the same as the rest of the UK. If it is set at a different rate, then Scottish taxpayers will pay a correspondingly higher or lower rate of income tax than elsewhere in the UK.
