If you're a charitable giver with a taxable income of more than £100,000, your liability for the income tax personal allowance will be gradually withdrawn. It is fully withdrawn when your taxable income surpasses £118,880 (for the 2013/14 tax year), meaning that the marginal rate of income tax on income between £100,000 and £118,880 is 60%!
