Reform the administration of Carer’s Allowance

The UK system for taxing benefits is overly complicated, totally inefficient and not at all user-friendly. The Scotland Bill 2015/16 devolves Carer’s Allowance to Scotland, a taxable benefit. This gives the Scottish Government the opportunity to lead by example and change the administration arrangements so that the benefit is either taxed at source or not subject to tax.
