HC Deb 02 November 1966 vol 735 cc127-8W
Mr. Dewar

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the proposed 10 per cent. surcharge on Surtax for 1965–66 will apply to the personal representatives of those who died in 1966–67 before it was announced.

Mr. Callaghan

Where a taxpayer died on or before 20th July, 1966, I propose that the surcharge shall not apply. I

also propose that in such a case the limit on the liability of the deceased for Surtax for 1966–67 under Section 236 of the Income Tax Act, 1952 (which provides that the Surtax on a person's income for the tax year in which he dies shall not exceed the amount which would have been due if the previous year's Surtax rates had applied for that year) shall be computed by reference to the basis Surtax rates for 1965–66, without the surcharge.
