AOL Money quotes CPS figures in article on the financial contribution of immigrants to the UK

    Felicity Hannah cites CPS figures in her article on the net financial contribution of immigrants to the UK (AOL Money).

    "And you might be surprised at how much you have to pay in tax before you're actually a net contributor rather than a burden on the state's resources. We might all pay tax, but figures from the Centre for Policy Studies last year showed that vast numbers of earners actually take more from the state than they put back in.

    It took the amount a household pays in direct and indirect tax and then subtracted the amount that home receives in state benefits, tax credits and 'benefits in kind', like the NHS or access to schools.

    According to that report, even those earning more than £22,000 a year take more from the state than they pay back."
