Petition A common rate of tax should be paid by everyone in Jersey.
I want the Government to impose a common and uniform rate of tax on all persons and companies operating in Jersey. The Government must not allow or continue with exceptions or deals as in the past in this current economic climate
The present system is unfair. There should be no discrimination between socio economic groups as this is fuelling inflation in both goods and services and housing. Wealthy people, in particular, migrate to Jersey because the levels of tax are lower than where they lived before. Current tax rates of 20% are lower than most countries and benefit those people considerably. Less wealthy people are discriminated against in Jersey.
