The Government responds to the fiscal revolution of the PP with a tax for the rich


The Government now opens the door to a tax on large fortunes that it voted against in June at the proposal of its partners at PodemosMurcia joins the race to lower taxes and today will lower personal income tax and is studying eliminating assetsMoreno and Ayuso threaten a battle judicial if the Treasury forces them to raise taxes The tax debate is becoming the great electoral battle between the PSOE and the PP in a very long campaign that has the first flying goal next May with the regional and municipal elections. The two great parties use taxes to confront their completely antagonistic models. The socialists make a flag that the Government of Sánchez lowers taxes for the social majority and raises them for the powerful in times of crisis to try to reconnect with the progressive electorate, the popular ones respond that lowering taxes increases collection and that with their recipes those who benefit are the medium and low incomes. The most affected by inflation. Now, the flags of one and the other are being translated into actions and intentions. Turn of the PSOE: tax on large fortunes In this idea that Sánchez works for the middle and working class of the country and “the PP with the rich”, the The Executive has taken a step forward by opening the door to a new tax on large fortunes as its coalition partner, United We Can, has always demanded. Until now the Socialists had rejected them arguing lack of consensus and the elaboration of a broader tax reform, in June they even voted against an initiative of the purples in Congress that demanded a state tax for taxpayers with more than 10 million euros . It has been the Minister of the Treasury, María Jesús Montero, -the one who marks the position of the entire Government in fiscal matters-, who has admitted that in Moncloa a contribution of the great fortunes is being explored to help finance the costs of the crisis. The PP is the party that has increased indirect taxation the most in Spain. Today I have reminded you of some of the goods and services to which VAT was raised. There are many more.
I have not been able to cite the list of goods to which the PP has lowered VAT because it is empty.— María Jesús Montero (@mjmonteroc) September 21, 2022 In times of difficulty like the current ones, Montero assured, the Government is working to request an effort from those who are in better conditions. After citing the two new taxes on large electricity companies and banks that are already being processed in the Chamber and with which the Government hopes to raise 7,000 million euros in two years, he pointed out that now it is time to study the “capacity to contribute to the large wealth of our country, to great fortune”. The old claim of Podemos throughout the legislature has become one of the entire Government in full negotiation between the two partners to prepare the General State Budgets, the last of this legislature. “It is not that some or others ask for it, it is that we agree with all the members of the Government that we have at this moment to ask for a greater effort from the great fortunes, the banks, the energy companies ”.All of us members of the Government agree that we have to ask the great fortunes, the banks, the energy companies (María Jesús Montero) for a greater effort at this time. The entire cabinet and socialist positions press on the message of the two tax models to get out of the crisis, that of Feijóo’s PP that “benefits the rich” and defends “electricity companies, oil companies, banks and large fortunes” and that of the PSOE that “asks for an effort from those who they have more so that we are able to accompany the middle and working classes”. For the Government, the most obvious example is the elimination of the wealth tax in Andalusia and Madrid. Treasury emphasizes the numbers, in the Andalusian case, it maintains, it only benefits 0.2% of taxpayers while sacrificing 120 million in revenue for health, education or dependency. Montero wonders who can be against at this time that “the largest assets, the highest income, those with extraordinary benefits contribute more to the benefit of the middle class of our country, which is the one that makes a greater fiscal effort.” Harmonizing is not recentralizing For the rest, the Government is in favor of reducing the margin of the autonomous communities to suppress taxes on those who have jurisdiction to avoid the risk of ‘fiscal dumping’. Of course, he clarifies that this does not mean centralizing. “Harmonization is not recentralization, far from it,” defended Montero. The Minister of Inclusion and Social Security himself, José Luis Escrivá, who opened the box of thunder, assures that he never used that word. In any case, the minister refers this debate to the regional financing system, which is stuck and with few signs of a solution this legislature. PP gives them 120 M € that the rest of Andalusians pay with the social hell in which they have turned this land into the queue of health and educational spending.— Alfonso R Gómez Celis (@gomezdcelis) September 21, 2022 In this strategy of confronting the two models, the PSOE has launched an offensive and will present motions in the 8,131 municipalities throughout Spain so that the PP picture himself and explain to the residents of each town why he opposes the levies on the large electricity companies and financial entities. Murcia enters the tax reduction race The Popular Party redoubles the pulse of the Government and now Murcia is joining in the race to lead the tax reduction ranking. The region chaired by the popular Fernando López Miras steps on the accelerator and today will sign a decree to lower personal income tax by 4.1% in the regional section. A measure that he had already announced at the end of May to alleviate the economy of some families heavily hit by runaway inflation. He is also studying eliminating the wealth tax, joining Madrid and now Andalusia. We lower taxes to help all those families who cannot make ends meet. Tomorrow we approve the IRPF deflation that will benefit the taxpayers of the first four sections of the regional rate. The #RegióndeMurcia advances without leaving anyone behind.— Fernando López Miras (@LopezMirasF) September 21, 2022 “Last year we already discounted 100% for those who invested in Projects of Regional Interest. And now we are projecting the revenue forecast for 2023, in order to be able to take the Patrimony part into the 2023 budget”, they explain to NIUS from the entourage of President López Miras. Genoa supports its barons Both the national leadership and its regional barons know perfectly well that Moncloa has brought out all the artillery to present them as the party that only defends the interests of the rich at the expense of the most disadvantaged classes, they believe that this discourse does not take its toll on them because “it is in their DNA” to lower taxes. “I don’t think it will hurt us. The reality is that tax cuts have a greater impact on medium and low incomes. Like the deflation of personal income tax”, one of its five regional presidents insists to NIUS. I don’t think the government will hurt us by lowering taxes on the rich. The reality is that tax cuts have a greater impact on medium and low incomes. Like the deflation of personal income tax They are convinced that they can get a good political cut from this fiscal battle with an eye on the May elections. “In European social democracy they do the same as the PP. The only one that goes against the tide is the PSOE, which is podemizing itself,” Feijóo’s number three, Elías Bendodo, assured yesterday at the gates of the Senate. If the Minister of Finance threatens with a fiscal counteroffensive to tax large estates, the popular respond that “we must not tear our clothes” to eliminate the wealth tax because the first one who did it was Zapatero. If Vice President Nadia Calviño accuses the PP of “lowering taxes on the rich and impoverishing public services”, in Genoa they counterattack with the mantra that less tax pressure means more revenue and more money for both health and education. If Minister Escrivá stirs up the ghost of fiscal harmonization, the PP endorses the fiscal revolution of its autonomous barons. Moreno and Ayuso threaten a “forceful” response The President of the Andalusian Government threatens a “forceful” response in court if Moncloa intervenes in his fiscal autonomy. A warning to which President Isabel Díaz Ayuso has joined, erected in the “worst nightmare” for those who intend to force her to raise taxes. Juan Manuel Moreno defends his right to compete fiscally with the rest of the territories and once again calls on Catalan investors to move to his region. So much so that the Board will open an economic office in Catalonia to attract investment. Something that has sat the Government of the Generalitat on fire. The wealth tax is anachronistic, it only exists in two EU countries and attacks property and the saver. Madrid defends a fiscal policy that can be copied in all regions. We will defend it where necessary.— Isabel Díaz Ayuso (@IdiazAyuso) September 21, 2022 “We want to attract more investors, more wealth and progress to Andalusia. That they establish their fiscal residence in Andalusia and avoid the flight of taxpayers with high incomes”, Moreno said in the act of presentation of the tax reduction decree. “If people leave Catalonia it is for other reasons,” Ayuso, champion of lowering taxes, has interjected. Ayuso and Moreno have found an unexpected ally. The Catalan employers’ association applauds the suppression of heritage, although it does criticize that the president of the Board wants as a trophy the transfer of companies to Andalusia.
