Lower taxes and rehabilitate public finances goes but the Germans can look forward Bonn/Dusseldorf on tax cuts but only as of 2009. And even then only if the SPD and Union really keep their election promises. Everyone feels it: A relief of the citizens and businesses is long overdue. The Center waiting for relief”, writes Mario Ohoven in the trade service issued by him success. The reduction of the national debt should not abandoning therefore. Ohoven contradicts the Chancellor, which emphasizes lowering taxes and rehabilitate public finances at the same time go. The tax revenue of the State to 91 billion euros have increased between 2004 and 2007.
The income of persons in employment increased during the same period only 18 billion euros”, writes the Dusseldorf business expert. The excesses of this system were absurd. A nurse about their earning will rise in the next five years to each of three percent gross, has at the end according to calculation by experts NET less. Her salary increases though during this period to 15.9 percent, but the tax burden by 30.6 percent. After deducting inflation, you stay alive less than before but at the State land plus a lush.
“Overall, the rule of thumb is: increase wages by one percent, growing revenue by two percent”, so Ohoven. “He advertises, in the success that the so-called cold progression” will be abolished. “That is, that the supposedly friendly linear-progressive tax scale in any wage increase and it serves the State as the winner, only the compensation for inflation the good employees” taxpayers, however, is the loser. In the 1950s you had to already have 20 times the average income, to reach the top tax rate. Today enough for the 1.3 times. Ohovens proposal: the marginal tax rates should not exceed 15 percent, the tariff kink at the bottom must disappear, the entire course of the tariff is lower. The top tax should only from an annual salary amounting to 60,000 Euro apply. In addition the author considers it desirable, as in other countries also a tariff on wheels”to create, which ensures regular adjustment of the tax tariff on the course of inflation. In the long run this also contributes to the consolidation of public finances. Because the economy in motion, comes bubbling also revenue. “Also, anything goes: cut spending!” By Paul Humberg
