Challenge Poverty Week... Day 5

< Back

Today's the day to talk about taxation and how the system can be used to introduce justice into our economy



Here are two ways governments can help alleviate poverty through the tax system:

The UK/Scottish Government to introduce a windfall/excess profits tax on large businesses who have made excess profits through the crisis, with revenue used to bolster our social security system and support the establishment of a Community Wellbeing Fund targeted at community and third sector organisations. 

The UK Government to introduce a one-off wealth tax or annual net wealth tax.
