Closed petition Reduce tax for people who return to work with serious life limiting illnesses
People with serious illnesses often struggle with financial issues as well as the debilitating conditions they suffer. We propose offering a reduced tax rate to people who can go back to work. This will allow people some additional funds to assist with the cost of living with illness.
Serious conditions such as cancer, fibromyalgia and many other cause the patient to suffer enormously and this burden isn't just physical and mental - often its financial too with lots of time taken off work due to effects of the illness and treatment. We propose allowing a lower tax rate or allowance to people who are able to go back to work. This will help the sick in our society get back on their feet.
