Poll: Would you like to see income tax or the USC cut in the next Budget?
Which cut would be more beneficial for you?

SIMON HARRIS, THE Minister of State for Finance has said income tax should be cut in the next Budget.

The Irish Times reports today that Harris is conscious that people pay 41% income tax on earnings over €32,800, which he said is a “low point”.


However, the Irish Independent reports that tax experts are recommending that families would benefit more from a cut in the Universal Social Charge (USC) instead of a cut to income tax.

So, we want to know what you would prefer. If you had to make the decision what would you do?
