The Common Weal Policy Podcast - Episode #76
You can download the episode directly here.
This week, Jonathon Shafi and Craig Dalzell introduce Common Weal's latest Policy Paper - A Property Tax for Scotland. Our proposal to replace the outdated and unfair Council Tax with a tax based on the actual value of land and buildings.
This tax would scrap the banding system and the bizarre method of calculating which house goes into which band and replace it with a tax that is simply calculated based on a percentage of the market value of the property with a rate of 0.63% being calculated as one that raises the same revenue as the current Council Tax does.
Common Weal's work is only possible thanks to our generous supporters who regularly donate an average of £10 per month. If you would like to help us build our vision of an All of Us First Scotland, you can do so here: http://commonweal.scot/about/donate
The Policy Podcast would like to discuss all of Common Weal's policy papers in detail over the next several months so if there are any papers that you would like to see covered sooner rather than later, send your suggestions in to firstname.lastname@example.org
