Who should get tax breaks: individuals or companies?

Michelle McGagh

When a country is slashing and burning to try and make ends meet tax cuts are usually few and far between. But when there is an option to ease a tax burden should it be given to individuals or businesses?

It might seem like an obvious answer; individuals, who are weary from the rounds of austerity measures, should be given a bit of a boost. Of course, let us not forget that a tax break does wonders for votes as well.
