Government to impose higher taxes on green cars to recoup lost tax revenue.
“You’re not going to believe this!” says reader Sonya Porter. “Green cars are charged less or no tax in Britain, but now it’s dawned on the Government that with so many going green, they are losing an awful lot of revenue.
“So now, guess what? They’re going to impose higher taxes on green cars just to recoup their losses.”
“So much for ‘sustainability’!”
“Labour has accused the Coalition of planning a “stealth tax” on drivers, effectively punishing them for going green.”
“Ministers say that while they have not finalised their plans, changes may be necessary to ensure the “sustainability of the public finances”.
