Low-income working families will be worse off under Coalition Tax Credit changes

25 Oct 2010, by in Society & Welfare

I have a post up at Left Foot Forward setting out my analysis of the impact that the Coaltion’s Tax Credit policy will have for low-income working families. It shows that working families stand to lose significant amounts as a result of the Budget and the Spending Review. For example, a dual earner household (with one part-time and one full-time earner on minimum wage) with two children will be over £700 a year worse off a year by 2012/13 than they would be if existing Tax Credit policy remained in place.
