All sales will be affected

AS A taxpayer and the owner of an independent motor business, I would like to add my comments to the debate.

Car tax debate delayed


DEBATE on Environment’s controversial plans to introduce a width and CO2 car tax has been delayed until next month.

Car taxes delayed but not dumped


ENVIRONMENT has slammed the brakes on its controversial width and C02 tax proposals, but the department is just stalling for time and will seek to pass them when ‘we least expect it’, according to the leader of a campaign against the taxes.

Electric cars aren’t carbon-free, what about the batteries?

FURTHER to the vehicle-tax debate and the so-called subsidies proposed by Environment on small, efficient cars, I would argue that the ‘subsidies’ quoted by the States are in fact ‘tax breaks’, as the only saving is the tax, there being no payment by the States to offset the higher basic cost of an electric vehicle over a standard-engine vehicle.

A wider solution

DEAR Vale deputies I am sure that you will be inundated with parishioners contacting you concerning the new vehicle width/emissions tax. I make no apology for adding to that correspondence.
