  13. Why do we have a 10% tax credit and a 10% tax?

    As title. Rookie question I know, but for the purposes of paying tax on dividends, earnings are grossed up 10% then taxed at 10%, meaning there is effectively no tax at this level. So why do it at all? Why not instead make it 0% tax up until 41865 then start taxing from there? What am I missing? :)
