Residents living part of Surrey have seen average income tax bills jump by 8% in a year.Read the full story ›
Celebrity neighbours and commuter links to the City of London have made Esher in Surrey the Uk's number one income tax hotspot, research shows.
Residents living in the Esher and Walton constituency - home to Frank Lampard, Gary Lineker, Mick Hucknall and Chris Tarrant - have seen average income tax bills jump by 8% in a year.
They paid the most income tax in 2012/13 with bills averaging £16,900, up from £15,700 the year before and almost four times the national average of £4,363, a study by the UHY Hacker Young accountancy group found.
Like Esher, the other top five highest income tax-paying constituencies - Chesham and Amersham, Windsor, Beaconsfield, and Dorking & Leatherhead - are all in the Home Counties and within an hour's commute from London.

South East Coast Ambulance service said that eleven people had to be taken to hospital after the school coach crash in Staines this morning.
One person suffering back injuries was taken to St George's Hospital, while ten others with more minor injuries were taken to St Peters Hospital.
A further 58 passengers were assessed at the scene but did not need hospital treatment.
Surrey Police said Chertsey Lane at the junction with Riverside Drive and Chertsey Lane roundabout are both closed while the emergency services deal with the incident.
The road is expected to remain closed for a significant period and motorists are being advised to avoid the area if possible.
Ambulances were called to the scene in Chetsey Lane, Staines at around 10am this morning, where a coach carrying school children to Thorpe Park crashed into a railway bridge.
A statement on the school website said that a number of the children had sustained 'cuts and bruises', but no one had been seriously injured.
South East Coast Ambulance Service said it has declared a 'major incident' because of the nature of the incident, but none of the injuries were thought to be life threatening.
We have robust plans in place for managing incidents of this nature and will be working with our emergency service partners to ensure that we assess and treat anyone who may be injured as swiftly as possible.
