HC Deb 23 July 1926 vol 198 cc1574-5W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether any information is available as to the number of persons who pay Income Tax on incomes below £300; from £300 to £400; from £400 to ,£600; from £600 to £1,000; from £1,000 to £2,000; from £2,000 to £5,000; from £5,000 to £10,0000; and over £10,000?


I regret that, under the present system of charging the Income Tax, it is impossible to classify the Income Tax payers by ranges of total income. As regards incomes of £2,000 and upwards, however, the latest particulars of the numbers of persons assessed to Super-tax will be found in Table 74, on page 109, of the 68th Report of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue (Command Paper 2547).
