Scotland Against the Care Tax is pleased to announce that it has produced a new guide to the Care Tax. The Care Tax is a burden placed on disabled people where they have to pay additional costs for social care services, halving already paid local and income taxes for the upkeep of public services. This double burden of taxes drives many disabled people into poverty and denies disabled people their human rights.
This new guide uses a comic & cartoon style to explain how charges work, how the system varies across Scotland and how disabled people's rights are affected. We also show what can be done.
