Petition Stop the double taxation of the Jersey pension
The Jersey pension is included in the assessment for yearly income taxation even though a person during their working life paid tax on their GROSS income including their Social Security payments an element of which goes towards their pension.
Income tax during working life is based on GROSS earnings including Social Security payments and tax is paid on the GROSS amount.
Why therefore is it taxed again if a pensioner is above the tax threshold?
