Abolish the income tax personal allowance taper for people earning over £100k

Petition Details

Due to personal allowance tapering, those earning between £100,000 and £125,140 end up effectively paying a marginal income tax rate of 60%. We believe paying more tax on earnings than what one takes home is unfair and this taper should be eliminated

Additional Information

Tapering personal allowance means that for every £100 of income between £100,000 and £125,140, you only get to take £40 home – £40 is deducted on earnings over £100,000, while another £20 is lost by the tapering of the personal allowance. This amounts to a 60% tax rate on earnings within this range.

As a result, the Government receives more in tax revenue than the worker who does the actual work to earn a living, which we believe is unfair and should be stopped.
