I go slightly further, I don’t think those on less than about 10k should be paying income tax or NI. There’s even a leftish justification for that in Richard Layard’s numbers on happiness. Up to about $20 k dollars a year happiness increases with rising income. It’s as good a justification as anything else for a moral basis for taxation.
