Should married couples get a tax break?

April 10, 2010 11:53am CST
The Conservatives have proposed a annual £150 tax break to married couples or civil partners earning in the lower and middle tax boundaries. In my opinion this is saying that someone that has found love and got married is worth more than someone that hasn't yet met someone that is right for them. Being single my opinion is of course biased. What are your opinions and reactions? Thanks, Andy.

I'm out of touch but didn't married couples always have a tax advantage over singles? Or was that only for one partner working? Anyway 150 doesn't sound very much to me. Must be an election pledge - they'll forget it afterward!

I think they might already get a slight tax break but at the moment I've heard its less than 150, even though, what are your thoughts on what it says about the views the government is trying to say about how they view the married and in relationships than the people who aren't in a relationship.
