Taxing of Lump Sum

Back to all Motions

2003 Retired Members' Conference
3 September 2003

Conference is opposed to any proposal to tax the lump sum that is paid to widows/widowers in the event of a pensioner dying within five years of retirement. Such lump sums are currently tax-free.

Conference requests the National Retired Members’ Committee to ask the National Executive Council to organise a campaign to oppse this proposal and any other proposal that would impose unfair tax impositions upon widows/widowers.
