Thousands of West Dorset Families Hurt by Tax Cut for the Rich


6:32pm 19th March 2013

A tax break for the rich will hit 18 thousand families claiming child benefit in West Dorset, that's according to UNISON.

The Chancellor is expected to announce a cut to the 50p TOP rate of tax in tomorrows budget, meaning the Countries top earners are taxed 100 thousand pounds less.

UNISON South West say that money could END the child benefit freeze and give thousands of West Dorset's low income families an extra 114.50 a year.

George Osborne says the cut will result in more people paying the top rate instead of hiding their money elsewhere.
