We’ve posted a number of blog pieces on the taxation gender gap since we launched J4MB in 2013, they’re all here.
The latest government gendered figures on income and tax, which relate to FY20/21, are here. We’ve highlighted three key rows, relating to all individuals, men only, and women only. Key extracts, numbers in billion, figures for women in brackets:
Self-employment income – £75.1 (£21.8)
Employment income – £514.0 (£313.0)
Total income – £753.0 (£427.0)
Total tax – £139.0 (£56.7)
The proportion of tax paid by men has remained consistent, being 71% in both 2010/11 and 2020/21. The taxation gender gap increased from £64.4 billion to £82.3 billion over the same period.
