The SPD Finance expert Carsten Schneider has called for a revision of the basic tax should no longer be added to the associated costs.
In an interview with the “Rheinische Post” (Tuesday) recommended that the Parliamentary Manager of the SPD group in the Bundestag, in addition to the basic tax reform, operating costs, changing regulation, and the levy of property tax on Rents.
in the Future, the levy should be borne solely by the owner, claimed Schneider. So he responded to the warning of the Minister-President of Bavaria, Markus Söder (CSU) in front of rising Rents due to higher property tax.
The CSU leader, had spoken out in the search for a compromise to avoid a large administrative burden: “We don’t need 2000 new financial officers for the land-tax, the money I would rather spend for police officers and teachers. And of course, we need to increase taxes – and rent increases – to avoid. Because the land tax is allocated immediately to the tenant.”
After a decision of the Federal constitutional court, the reason must be reformed to be expensive. At the beginning of February had agreed that the Federal government and the Länder on the key points. Even then, Söder rated this, however, is critical. According to the white paper, a model should be sought, in the land values, age of buildings and the average rent used to be. Bayern had made, however, for a non-bureaucratic tax calculation only to the surface.
