Tax modifications: minority report

National Interest Conciliation Council (OÉT) attacked the government’s plan to merge the so-called small taxes.

Both employees and employers refused the concept, and came up with a series of criticism. The only detail in which the government concept was accepted is the reduction of the corporate tax to 10% under Ft 50 million turnover.

Trade union resorts should not be subject to luxury tax, and workers should receive annual Ft 4000 extra funding, as receiving their salaries on a bank account involves extra expenses, according to employees represented by spokesperson Péter Pataky. Ágnes Ungvárszki, spokesperson of employers approved all tax modifications which reduce administrative expenses.

The Ft 400,000 limit of total bonuses does not make any sense, but burdens both the companies and the state with extra expenses, she opined. There has to be a differentiation between tax evasion and involuntary mistakes, she added. Gábor Csizmár, undersecretary of social and labor ministry was willing to inform the government about the opinions discussed at the council. (Gazdasági Rádió, Magyar Hírlap)
