Have your say

From Sunday the personal tax allowance has increased to £10,000 which is great news and means that you don’t have to pay tax on the first £10,000 of your earnings.

This rise will lift around 402 people in Morecambe and Lunesdale out of income tax and means that more than 4,000 people will be lifted out of income tax altogether.

Since 2010 the typical taxpayer has paid around £705 less which is quite a saving for hardworking people. The personal tax allowance will again increase to £10,500 next year which I think is good news.
