Hello,although we are not tax payers ourselves, does anybody know if the above gifts from the government to help with our bills is taxable? Regards oap ps we have been grateful for this, also the fact that when labour came into power one of the first things they did was to reduce vat on fuel from seventeen and half percent to five percent, I am not sure the conservatives had any intention of doing that, so it has been a great help. Its gettingpretty worrying, we are stuck with oil,no gas only calor gas where we live which is getting very expensive, and to fill our one thousand litre oil tank probably next week will be around four hundred pounds,we we came here to retire twenty years ago it was ten pence a litre, our pension has not kept up with it, nor the rates increases, we are guite anxious now as our oil is low and it is still cold, we are wondering if we can find any company to hal fill the tank at not extra cost per litre. Has anybody any ideas,as it is getting quite ridiculous,can anybody get Mr Gordon Brown to read this website, perhaps he should, the prime minister too"!!
