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.
