"An allowance" é, neste caso, um desconto do seu imposto de renda a ser pago. "A marriage tax allowance" se refere a uma proposta recente de Cameron, de re-introduzir essa medida no código do IR britanico:

"Many people will remember that married couples used to get an extra tax allowance. In other words they would pay less tax than a couple who merely lived together. The allowance in its later years was called, simply, the Married Couples Allowance. Gordon Brown scrapped it in 1999 while he was Chancellor.

The only people who still get this abolished allowance are those where one party to the marriage was born before April 1935. So only folk in their nineties stand a chance.

So as I said, the tax system currently gives special treatment to married couples, and those in civil partnerships, by way of Inheritance Tax and Capital Gains Tax treatments. Only when the government makes a further announcement will we know if a form of Married Couples Allowance is to make a come-back.

If so they may have to come up with a politically-correct term for it which will also cover same-sex relationships. Maybe the Legal Couples Allowance?"
