Homebuyers Hit By £1bn "Stealth Tax"

"The burden will continue to increase unless the Government undertakes to abandon its current strategy of making the occasional cosmetic tweak to the threshold to keep criticism at bay.

"Threshold increases by the Government to help first time buyers have had little effect. The average first time buyer property now costs £148,000 - that's more than £22,000 above the new threshold.

Having paid nearly £40,000 in Stamp Duty earlier this year. I can thoroughly endorse the fairness of this tax.

I was delighted to pay out of savings (that are taxed) from earnings that are also taxed.

If the new council tax proposal comes in I shall also enjoy paying my ludicrously inflated cost of having a bin emptied by a dustman enjoying my stunning views.
