Scottish taxpayers get the best value for money in the UK — Scottish National Party

Scottish taxpayers get the best deal in Britain, paying on average £590 a year less than they would in Tory-run Englandand £423 less than in Labor-led Wales.

Meanwhile, the average council tax increase, for 2022/23, is lower in Scotland (3%) than in England (3.5%).

We have also introduced a fairer income tax system – so that those with the broadest shoulders pay a little more, while the majority of Scots pay less.

Around 55% of taxpayers pay less income tax in Scotland than they would anywhere else in the UK.

Even Scottish Conservative Secretary Alister Jack admitted it.

Under the SNP government, in all corners of Scotland, people benefit from many things that are not available to people south of the border.

Here are some examples.

  • Free lessons
  • Free prescriptions
  • Free bus travel for under 22s
  • Free personal care for all who need it
  • Free extension of early learning and childcare to 1,140 hours
  • Free sanitary products
