Resolution Foundation says levy now resembles much maligned poll tax and should be replaced with more progressive system


Quote:
Council tax is an outdated and regressive levy on households that should be scrapped in favour of a progressive levy on property, according to a report by the Resolution Foundation.

The thinktank said council tax had become almost flat-rated in some areas to leave it resembling the much maligned poll tax of the early 1990s.

Earlier this year Labour’s Andrew Gwynne suggested his party could scrap council tax and replace it with a “radical” new system for funding local government.

Without giving details of planned changes, Labour’s shadow communities secretary said: “Council tax is broken. It is not fit for purpose.”
