"New data just available shows that 1,704 additional residents in Lichfield, Burntwood, and surrounding villages will no longer have to pay any income tax as a result of changes made in the budget" says Michael Fabricant. “And a further 1,236 people will be taken out of tax in 2013.
"I know that smokers and keen pasty eaters will have to pay more as a result of the budget, but some 31,737 residents in the Lichfield Parliamentary constituency will end up paying less tax. And far from suffering from a ‘granny tax’, pensioners will be receiving more too with an overall increase in their incomes.
"I know that times are tough for many, but I hope that this extra income will help stimulate the local economy of Lichfield and Burntwood" Michael adds.
