NCVO’s campaign Give it back George - Drop the charity tax is covered prominently on the front page of today’s Daily Mail.
Under a headline reading Give it back, George! 800 furious charities say Osborne’s budget will lose them millions as wealthy donors are branded tax dodgers, the report states that “Charities went to war with Downing Street last night after wealthy donors were branded tax dodgers. No 10 said many are giving money to bogus charities, some of them abroad, to claim income tax relief and wipe out their liabilities.
But furious charities said the accusations – for which Downing Street has produced no evidence – were a desperate attempt to justify George Osborne’s plan to cap tax relief on donations.”
