    I am doing an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) and require the gathering of data in order to be able to write my essay and record all the results. I would really appreciate it if anyone would spend a few minutes answering the following questions honestly, in order to provide me with the resources I need to begin and complete my project. All I require is your age and profession (i.e. 17 student) and the copy and pasting of the questions with your answers.

    1.What is VAT?
    2.What is Council Tax?
    3. What is Income Tax?
    4. Are holiday homes and second homes liable for council tax?
    5. Are empty properties exempt from council tax?
    6.What do you pay VAT on?
    7.What percentage is VAT?
    8. What income is taxable?

    Thank you very much.
