"Let's talk about EU tax policy"
TAE was asked January 2023 questions about the EU's current tax policy by the magazine of the Swedish Taxpayers' Association and asked for our assessment.
In the interview, the current efforts of the EU to further expand its tax competence and at the same time massively increase EU spending are discussed. Not only does the EU want to levy higher and new taxes, but there are also strong efforts in the EU Parliament and the EU Commission to make the EU debt, which is actually limited in time to cope with the corona pandemic, a permanent institution. At the same time, more and more national competences are to be transferred to Brussels. This is a development that we in the Taxpayers' Association cannot endorse and which could ultimately boomerang on the people and businesses of Europe.
