President Vaclav Klaus signed the tax increase (21 December 2012)


PRAGUE (MEDIAFAX) - Increasing VAT by one percentage point to 15 and 21 percent will apply to the new year. President Vaclav Klaus on Friday signed a package of tax and budget rules.

The amendment in addition to higher VAT also brings the end of green taxes or tax relief for working pensioners. The government promises to collect more money in the budget, the opposition believes that it is unrealistic and more expensive does not bring results.

Approved standard also establishes a seven percent tax on people with incomes over 100,000 crowns a month, which will be valid for one year. Current expenditure on self-inclusives remain preserved according to the package, but the amount of tax deductions at 30 and 40 percent lump-sum income will be limited in the amount of two million, so most of these traders apply in spending 600, or 800 thousand.Self-employed persons who decide to take advantage of fixed rates, lose some discounts, such as the tax credit for a dependent child, or discount for a spouse with no or low income.

The law also partially cancel the benefits for farmers, so-called green diesel. "The government promises to save 1.7 billion, but poured sand into the gears damaged agro-industry of our country. Cultivate less, reduces and breeds. Prvovýrobní All-intensive processes for oil and work will be significantly harmed by the measure. Alternative is routed directly to the national and European subsidies and the path to tensification, it is not desirable for the country., if the government is serious europotravinářským complex, so we return to the law and change it. those entrepreneurs who themselves want to make yourself, going to grant it a perhaps no one wants, "said Peter amendment Zgarba (CSSD).

The criticism of the package, however, was heard from the ranks of right-wing politicians. To government reforms embarked former member of ODS, now non-attached MEP Michal Doktor. He said that raising taxes in a situation of economic downturn is like treating a cancer patient in a forced labor camp. He claims that he was sure that the government can choose the planned 18 billion more this year because of tax collection failed. With the same view he also appeared deputy Public Affairs Michal Babak.

Minister Kalousek, however, disagrees with admonitions and repeatedly mentioned that he has already explained the tax reform eight times, each time was discussed.

His prize was a package for the smallest coalition party PEOPLE. The President of the Carolina Peake stipulated that changes the rules of procedure of Deputies that her party could have your new group. The current provision is not a sufficient number of members.

The Chamber of Deputies approved the tax package after several hours of debate Wednesday. Coalition needed 101 votes to the Senate overrode the negative, won them the 102nd
