1 The government, the ruling party, and the Blue House held last-minute negotiations on the lowering of the property tax rate for homeowners and the easing of the requirements for major shareholders in the stock transfer income tax.
In the case of the largest shareholder requirement, the government has discussed a plan to ease the demand from 300 million won to 500 million won.

<Reporter> On the
29th of last month, the party administration, which was trying to come up with an agreement, delayed the announcement due to opposition from some lawmakers and local government heads.
Last night, Democratic Party President Lee Nak-yeon, Prime Minister Jeong Sye-gyun, and Blue House Secretary-General Roh Young-min gathered at the Prime Minister's Office in Samcheong-dong, Seoul, and held a high-ranking party administration meeting.
The results were not announced, but first of all, it is reported that the government has met with the standard of lowering the property tax rate of one homeowner by 0.05 percentage points to a house with an official price of 600 million won or less, and the ruling party to a house with less than 900 million won.
It is pointed out that 900 million won is a standard for paying a comprehensive real estate tax, and it is pointed out whether it will even cut down on expensive houses, and the local government's opposition, which reduces local tax revenues, is considered a variable.
Therefore, it is reported that a compromise plan that cuts only 0.03 percentage points for houses between 600 million won and 900 million won was also discussed.
It is known that the opinion of the party administration has been approached to some extent on the requirement for the'largest shareholder' of the stock transfer income tax, which imposes a tax on stock transfer gains.
A senior government official said, "At the meeting of the high-ranking party administration yesterday, the government entered into a plan to ease the standard for large shareholders from 300 million won to 500 million won."
It seems that there will be no significant difference from the current family total of 1 billion won because it is decided to apply individually to individuals rather than the existing family total method.
It is criticized for giving the hands of the so-called'Donghak ants' who oppose the possibility of being taxable, but it seems difficult to avoid pointing out that fair taxation on capital income contradicts the government's policy stance.
