Most taxpayers can expect few changes to their income tax in April, as today's Budget has revealed.
The Chancellor Rishi Sunak's announcement means there won't be any changes to income tax rates, thresholds or allowances.

Since 2010, the government has raised the tax-free personal allowance by 90% from £6,475 in 2010 to £12,500 in 2019-20, as the chart below shows.
The Autumn Budget 2018 revealed that the threshold changes were being brought in a year ahead of what was promised in the Conservative manifesto, which is why they're sticking to £12,500 for 2020-21.
In the last Budget in October 2018, the personal allowance was raised from £11,850 to the current amount of £12,500.
The then-Chancellor Philip Hammond announced this would remain until April 2021, when the allowance would increase in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) measure of inflation.
Today's announcement won't affect Scotland and Wales, which already announced their Budgets for the upcoming tax year.
