Treasury Collects £6.60 An Hour In Taxes

Recommended Posts

Guest Charlie The Tramp
The Treasury collected £6.60 an hour for every hour that taxpayers worked last year - more than the minimum wage and more than £1 above what was paid five years ago.

The figures are the latest indication that Gordon Brown, who will become prime minister next month, has presented families with an increasingly onerous tax burden.

Presuming each of the 29.7 million taxpayers in the country works an eight-hour day, and takes standard time off for holiday, they each contributed £6.60 for every hour that they worked. Back in 2002, the 28.6m taxpayers handed over £5.31 an hour to the Government.

The figures, calculated by The Daily Telegraph, are taken from HM Revenue and Customs' annual report, which has just been published and shows that the Government's total tax take increased by £25 billion in the last financial year to £423 billion.

Some of the biggest increases have come from taxes that hit middle-class families

Gordon loves you baby

Well I am surprised that this passed under the Radar, with further increases in Taxation to come, life will become even more difficult with rising IRs. :blink:
