Under consideration PE1923: Align the Higher rate tax threshold to £37,501 in line with the rest of the UK

Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to align the Scottish higher rate tax threshold to £37,501 with the rate across the rest of the UK.

Previous action taken

Contacted my Local MP, who raised this with the Scottish Finance Minister. No response has been forthcoming.

Background information

The £4.6 Billion uplift in the Scottish grant announced in the recent UK Government Budget should give the Scottish Government the opportunity to "Level up" the Higher rate of tax threshold in line with the rest of the UK. I believe the increased revenue to the individuals and families will be recycled through the economy creating growth whilst rewarding hardworking people.
