National Economic and Social Council critical of new taxes
The National Economic and Social Council criticised the planned new taxes, particularly the plan to raise the tax on extra-wage benefits (meal coupons) at a meeting in Budapest yesterday.
Discussing next year's tax and budget bills, the Council said mesures for the safety of employees and families were absent and they were also critical of measures taken against poverty. The government established the National Economic and Social Council in 2012 to serve as a consultative forum aimed at harmonizing government viewpoints with those of private-sector employers, employees, churches and other organisations.
