Thanks to the Barnett formula, its being financed with English taxes, too! If Scotland goes it alone in the EU, Scottish taxes will go through the roof or there will be swingeing funding cuts - either way its citizens are in for a big shock!
Your basic assumption that everything would remain the same but taxes would go up is flawed. First of all theyd have full access to the revenue generated in Scotland and secondly much of Scotland would qualify for access to EU structural Fund and that is just for starters.
