Income Tax statistics and distributions

Analysis of estimated Income Tax liabilities statistics.

The Income Tax liability tables in this series provide breakdowns of the number of income taxpayers and Income Tax liabilities by age and gender, marginal tax rate, income source and tax band, and by country and Government Office Region.

You can find all tables for previous years on the National Archives website.

These tables are published twice yearly at schedules dictated by the release of new survey information for taxpayers and the publication of revised forecasts for the UK economy by the Office for Budget Responsibility.

User Engagement Exercise

HMRC has launched a user engagement exercise to provide users of Income Tax Liabilities Statistics an opportunity to provide feedback, comments and suggestions for improvements to the publication. The aim will be to reflect this in future editions of the publication.

Please complete this survey to provide feedback on the impact of the proposed change to an annual publication on users and to help us improve the release for users.

The results of this exercise will be published once the results have been collated and analysed.

This survey closes on Friday 26th January 2018.
