Scots will pay different tax rates to the rest of UK for the first time

Europe Editor and Presenter

The Scottish government has today unveiled income tax changes which will for the first time see Scots paying different tax rates to the rest of the UK. The SNP minority government has proposed small tax increases for middle and high income earners, but says that a new “starter rate” will mean anyone earning less than £33,000 a year won’t see their taxes go up.
