In 1990, property taxes to provide for local services in Britain were replaced with a "Community Charge" tax (also known as a "poll tax").  It was hugely unpopular since all adults were required to pay the same amount, regardless of economic circumstances. 

This leaflet - produced by the UK government's Central Office of Information - was distributed to about 30 million homes throughout the UK.
