Tory Councillors Spend Taxpayer Money to Dodge Tax

Kent County Council has spent over £5,000 of taxpayers’ money on financial advisers in order to challenge an HMRC decision to tax their travel expenses. Tory council leader Paul Carter clearly really, really doesn’t want to have to pay tax on the expenses he claims for ferrying himself around Kent. So much so that he has even proposed a 47% increase on councillors’ mileage allowance. Well if you can’t abuse your position as a councillor to ensure you pay less tax, what’s the point?
