Final variant of progressive tax
Everyone with a monthly salary higher than 130.000 will pay more taxes
after January 1st 2014. After several discussions, the government
decided for the final variant of the progressive tax.
Top Channel ahs the scheme
which is divided in three tax grades. Salaries from 0-30.000 will pay no
taxes. Salaries from 30.000-130.000 will pay 13% for the value over
Salaries over 130.000 will pay 23%. But how does the
burden change? Everyone who earns less than 130.000 ALL each month will
pay less taxes. Those who earn 140.000 will now pay 1300 ALL more.
Salaries 150.000 will pay 2600 ALL more.
According to the
Ministry of Finances, there are 8000 individuals who are paid over
130.000. This tax goes only for payments and bonuses. Other incomes,
such as rents and other activities are no included in this scheme, but
will have the same tax level. This could encourage individuals to
deviate their incomes for paying less taxes.
The new scheme hits the most correct individuals, who declare the real income and favors those who make evasion.
