SNP Council Tax Freeze Offers Financial relief for Local Householders

Banffshire & Buchan Coast SNP MSP Stewart Stevenson has said the SNP Government’s Council Tax freeze will provide financial relief to thousands of local households during tough times.

Last month, Scotland’s Finance Secretary Kate Forbes MSP announced a £90 million fund to compensate local authorities who choose to scrap planned rises in Council Tax.

Mr Stevenson has welcomed today’s decision by Aberdeenshire councillors not to raise the Council Tax level this year.

Under the draft budget plans, a majority of taxpayers will also continue to pay less income tax than they would in the rest of the UK.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“We all know the financial impact that this global pandemic has had locally.

“So it’s great news that this SNP Government has sought to provide relief to households by supporting local authorities to freeze the Council Tax for the coming year.

“In these tough times, the SNP Government has proven that where Scotland has the powers, we will take a different approach to give people in Scotland the fairest deal in the UK.”
