Repeat after me:

Jersey’s not a tax haven

Jersey’s not a tax haven

Jersey’s not a tax haven‚Ķ‚Ķ

Which is why the Jersey Evening Post reports today:

Eighteen of Jersey’s [tax exile]residents paid less than £10,000 in tax last year, the Assistant Treasury Minister said yesterday.

The figures were revealed during States question time as Deputy Trevor Pitman quizzed Deputy Eddie Noel over the tax contributions paid by some of the Island’s richest residents.

Deputy Pitman said that many middle earners were paying three times more tax than some of Jersey’s richest residents.

Now start again:
