One of my randome thoughts abt council tax!!
Band Property Value Tax Rates A 40000 948.08 2.37% B 52000 1106.09 2.13% C 68000 1264.11 1.86% D 88000 1422.12 1.62% E 120000 1738.15 1.45% F 160000 2054.17 1.28% G 320000 2370.2 0.74% H 500000 2844.24 0.57% H 1000000 2844.24 0.28% H 2000000 2844.24 0.14%
So .. if these morons in the council had figured out that the rich should pay more, they would have an increased rate as the property value goes up. or at least the same rate.
As you can see from my figure, the rich pays a lot less in terms of percentage!! Imagine someone who is making 15K per year and can only afford living in a small shack. - pays 6% of their GROSS salary on Darn Council Tax and people who earn 300K pays only .9 % of their income.
To put this into perspective, 6 % of 1 year is 21 days! 3 darn weeks of your hard working life is spent on darn council Tax, and oh.... 3 days of the rich dude to pay his council tax.
And now you wonder why the rich is getting richer and the poor is just getting by!
Time to let these people know that we aint doing this anymore! Maybe it's time to run for Council! I should get a lot of vote from people who are in the lower class. And I am stinkin sure that there are a lot more of us than the rich dudes! -
