Land Value Tax petition

The Government has re-established its e-petition site. In August a petition was established on taxing land values:

“To introduce Land Value Taxation, an annual tax on the rental value of land, as the chief source of government revenue to replace existing sources of taxation including income tax, VAT and Council Tax.”

It is quite sensibly worded as a tax shift. In fact there are three petitions which not very helpful for accumulating votes but one, created by Peter Smith is collecting the votes and already has over 200. Go on, visit the site and add your name!
