Have you saved in a cash ISA this tax year (ie since April 11)?MoneySaving Poll Results


A cash ISA is simply a tax-free savings account. You're allowed to put in 5,340 per tax year – then it stays tax free year after year. Yet the cash ISA year end is nearly upon us (5 April), and if you don't use it you lose it.

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
