Taxes: Finance Minister Scholz against complete soli-abolition
TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates
Berlin (AP) - Finance Minister Olaf Scholz rejects the concept of Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier for a complete abolition of the solidarity surcharge. "A tax cut for millionaires" is not on the agenda, Scholz told the "Bild am Sonntag". Altmaier wants companies and top earners to be relieved quickly. He thus presented a counter model to plans by Scholz - just before the coalition leaders today. Scholz wants to cancel the solos for 90 percent of the payer, another 6.5 percent should pay him only partially from 2021 - the higher the income, the more.
