The government is facing a backlash from organisations as diverse as the
Church of England and the
Automobile Association over new stealth
taxes proposals aimed penalising people who use their own cars to drive to work.
Millions of workers such as travelling salesman and vicars in rural parishes
could face tax increases of hundreds of pounds a year under the new plans aimed
at reducing carbon emissions, the lobbying groups have claimed.
Under a plan reportedly being considered by ministers, anybody driving 10,000
miles for work could be £1,500 a year worse off.
HM Revenue and Customs confirmed any
tax penalty would apply to those using their own cars for work but dismissed
claims that the change would definitely happen as ‘pure speculation’, according
to website, The Scotsman reported.
