After 93 years of sitting in our window screens, George Osborne has announced that the tax disk is going to be axed in favour of an electronic system.
The tax disk was introduced in 1921 but the change of heart is said to be due to that tax disks are simply not needed any-more. Both the police and DVLA; when searching for your details, have everything (including all your tax disk details) registered online, so there is simply no reason to have a physical tax disk any-more.
Also, there are said to be plans to enable people to pay for their car tax weekly by direct debit if they cannot pay yearly or every six months. This will make things a whole lot easier!
The tax disk and payment changes are said to be coming into effect in October 2014!
