Who is next under the UK tax microscope?

Over the last few weeks we have seen a number of potential new taxes discussed in political circles which include a tax on homes with a value of £1 million and over, a telephone line tax, car park tax and yet more taxation with regards to the environment. Slowly but surely the UK government is casting its net very wide to try and bring in as much new tax income as possible by introducing indirect taxes which will not impact on its promise to keep income tax law.

Many believe that Internet users of tomorrow are fast becoming the motorists of yesterday, who have been and continue to be "cash cows" for the UK Treasury. It is no secret that the UK government has been looking to introduce Internet-based taxes for some time, as have many other governments around the world, and with money tighter than ever, it seems that now is the time. So who is next on the list?

The problem with new taxes is the fact that in the run-up to a general election many plans, whichever party gains power, will be shrouded in secrecy until they receive the keys to number 10 Downing Street. It is only then that we will see the "real" taxation policies of the Labour and Conservative parties and it will be only then that we are able to forecast how much each and every person in the UK would be forced to "divvy-up"
