At last – Tax Justice Movement grasps the LVT point

At last, a piece from TJN in support of LVT with no ifs and buts. We hope now that TJN will stop talking about LVT as part of a balanced package of taxes. Of course LVT cannot replace all existing taxes at a stroke and it will need a bedding-in period of several years whilst all the harmful and avoidable taxes are phased out. And there will probably always be a place for “sin taxes”, a moral dilemma since they rely on people’s propensity to sin in order to raise revenue. But tax justice demands a determined move away from taxes on work.
