The #TenantTax campaign coalition has produced a document in PDF format which can be printed to give to people and/or saved and attached to emails.

It needs to be shared far and wide.

We also suggest sending it to all of your tenants and I suspect your local University Accommodation Officers, Letting Agents, Accountants, Solicitors and Mortgage Advisers will also find it compelling reading.

In short, if you disagree with Government proposals to charge tax on legitimate business expenses then remember the following ….


The above stands for “Get Off Your Arse”!

Sorry to be crude but this problem isn’t going to go away unless each and every person reading this article plays their part, that includes YOU!

You can access the document via the link below.

Please leave a comment confirming that you will pledge your support and outline what YOU are going to be doing.

And also share on Facebook please.

Thanks in advance

I have emailed this to the four MP's and 12 Councillors in whose constituencies/wards my properties are situated.

However, knowing how much mail both MP's and Councillors receive, this will only work if absolutely all your members bombard their elected representatives with emails and/or letters.

Unfortunately, single emails are simply not going to be noticed.

Everyone who reads this really must send it out. Please, everybody, don't assume others will do it and you don't have to bother.

Try printing and put it one of those old fashioned letters, much greater impact than an email.

It isn't unusual for local councillors to knock on your front door asking for your support when it is election time.

Why not print this and knock on their front door to ask for their support?

If you search Google for "local councillors + your local council name" then you will find links to their profile pages which always disclose their home addresses.

Please report back in how you get on.

I've written to my mp Nick Gibbs (conservative) several times about this. On his profile he lists his interests as including economics and taxation. But he doesn't seem particularly interested in this.

Hi David

Just read your recent article about getting the message about Clause 24 through to Theresa May and Philip Hammond.

I suggest trying Twitter. It doesn't always work, but I managed to get the attention of my MP, Gareth Thomas, who said he would be reading the document I tweeted the link to. In the past, I've exchanged many tweets with Gavin Barwell, via his aid at the time.

However, I have no doubt that Gavin Barwell will be privately making attempts to dissuade them, as I would be very surprised to find he supports this on a personal level.

We had sent e-mails to both Karen Buck (North Westminster) and Mark Field (Cities of London and Westminster.) as we are in both the areas. Following reply received from Mark. Still awaiting reply from Karen.


Thank you for your email.

I am afraid that due to the resumption of Parliament following the Summer Recess and the ongoing conference season, my diary is incredibly hectic for the foreseeable future and as such I will be unable to arrange a meeting anytime soon, and certainly not before the High Court hearing at the start of October.

I note that members of the campaign recently met with the Housing Minister and the attachment you provided contained recent correspondence between Ian Murray MP and the Treasury Minister Jane Ellison MP on this issue. Given that I would make representations to these very Ministers, I do not feel I would be able to elicit any further response from the Government.

Additionally as the campaign has initiated legal proceedings, and due to the strict separation between the legislature and the judiciary, I believe it is appropriate to let the Judicial Review take its course without additional intervention at this time

Thank you once again for taking the time and trouble to write to me about this matter. If you require me to make representations to the Government in the future, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Kind regards,
