Its a couple of days old so apologies if this has already been discussed.
Just found this tax calculator on the BBC. I was gobsmacked to find that as a employed couple with no kids, household income probably a tiny bit over average, I am in the '10th decile' i.e. the top band. Even reducing the salary a tad to average for both of us still leaves us in the '9th decile'. I'm guessing as soon as I add a couple of sprogs, child benefit and schooling will bring this down substantially...
(Perfectly happy paying tax btw, its only the longterm workshy segment that makes me feel I'm being robbed!)
P.S. The 10th decile, does that mean from 100 people, 10 are in each decile, or is there more to it?
Edit: I was wrong, adding two school age sprogs and halving one of our incomes to indicate a part time parent only brings it down to the 7th percentile, still a 'giver' in tax given/taken.
