Second, the property tax issue is similar.

The government is in a position to lower the property tax only for houses with an official price of 600 million won, so in reality, 8 to 900 million won, but the ruling party uses this standard as a house with an official price of 900 million won, 1.1 billion and 1.2 billion won. It is a position to upload to.

I will connect reporters to this and ask about the progress.

Reporter Jung-Hyun Jung, are you continuing the meeting right now?


Yes, the high-ranking party administration meeting is being held at the Prime Minister's Consulate in Samcheong-dong, Seoul from 5:30 pm today (1st).

Democratic Party Representative Lee Nak-yeon, Prime Minister Jeong Sye-gyun, and Blue House Secretary-General Roh Young-min attended, but the results of the meeting have not yet been delivered.

On the 29th of last month, it was planned to come up with an agreement by the Party Government on the standard for easing the property tax for one-homeowners and the stock capital gains tax, but the announcement was postponed due to opposition from some lawmakers and local government heads.

One meeting attendee said, "I have to agree somehow today, but I don't know if it will happen."

particular, in the case of property taxes, since so many Democrats have been elected in Seoul and the metropolitan area, the opinions of these lawmakers and these are having some influence. How about?


Yes, the issue is whether the price standard for one homeowner, which lowers the property tax rate by 0.05 percentage points, is 600 million won or 900 million won.

In the future, the government plans to increase the official price to 90% of the market price. Then, as taxes such as property tax increase, it is trying to lower the property tax for only one homeowner.

The Democratic Party is demanding 900 million won, but it is a standard for paying a comprehensive real estate tax, and the market price exceeds 1 billion won, and there is an objection over whether it even cuts such houses.

Local government backlash is also a variable.

This is because even if the property tax is cut only for houses under 600 million won, the local tax revenue of about 350 billion won per year is reduced.

Therefore, there is a prospect that a compromise will be found in the middle line, such as a reduction of only 0.03 percentage points for houses between 600 million and 900 million won, or a contact point will be found by combining property tax and stock transfer income tax into a package.
