Jonathan Djanogly MP: A tax cut of £220 for 41,636 people in Huntingdonshire
16th April 2012
Hardworking people across Huntingdonshire will be up to £220 better off next year thanks to the largest ever increase in the personal allowance announced by George Osborne in the Budget.
In his 2012 Budget the Chancellor announced that the income tax personal allowance will be increased from April 2013 by an additional £1,100 to £9,205. This increase will give 41,636 people in the Huntingdon constituency a much needed boost every month.
This means that income tax has been cut by up to £546 for basic rate taxpayers since the Government came to power and 2 million of the lowest earners will have been taken out of tax altogether.
Welcoming the decision, Jonathan Djanogly, MP for Huntingdon, said:
“This is fantastic news for residents throughout my constituency, and will further cut the tax bill of 41,636 people by up to £220 next year. Thanks to this decision, 1419 people in Huntingdonshire will be taken out of tax altogether. This means that 3463 residents of Huntingdonshire will have been lifted out of income tax altogether by this Government.”
“The announcement shows that this Government is committed to helping hard-working families in Huntingdonshire and across the UK”.
