Britons 'do not trust politicians over tax'
Head of taxation at ACCA Chas Roy-Chowdhury said wealthier people, because they work more with the tax authorities, do trust them a bit more. He commented: "The more people try and unravel the way politicians work and interact with the tax regime, the more they are willing to understand and accept some of the decisions."
The keeping of promises on tax has been a big issue already this year, with Philip Hammond dropping Budget proposals to raise the level of type 4 national insurance (NI)? for the self-employed, following a pledge in the 2015 Conservative manifesto not? to? raise NI.
