Does splitting church tax set a precedent?

MUCH of the interest in this week’s States debate on parochial church property stems not from the proposed law – which was studiously unambitious – but from the amendments it faces. To have as many as four amendments to a projet at this stage is unusual and an indication that the long period of consultation, consideration and legal drafting has failed to satisfy some members that it has all been worth it. The latest amendment is a fundamental shift not just to this law but could be said have far-reaching implications for one of the central principles of taxation.
