Tax question

Having watched the debate over the last few weeks I have not seen or heard any mention of the level of income tax and national insurance that would be levied on the working population by a Scottish Parliament.

Will the threshold and
percentages be as at present in the UK? I am sure an economist can do the sums based on the working population and the
services to be provided; oil
taxation can surely not provide for everything.

VAT, inheritance tax and stamp duty are at least three other taxes that should also be considered.

I do not have a vote in the
referendum but I was born in Glasgow and did all my schooling there. I still have connections in Scotland so I have a personal
interest in the outcome.
