Lusa - Business News - Portugal: If socialists win election, tax burden on middle classes will be reduced - PM




Lisbon, Jan.13,2022(Lusa) – The secretary-general of the PS (socialist party) argues that his government has lowered the weight of taxes in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by one percentage point and that, if the PS wins the elections, it will reduce the tax burden on the middle classes.
These positions on the evolution of taxes in Portugal appear in a video released by António Costa on Thursday, the day he will have a televised face-to-face debate with the president of the PSD (social democrats) , Rui Rio.
"The first decision of the PS majority, right after the elections, will be to approve the State Budget that the other parties rejected. With the approval of this Budget, we will lower taxes on the middle class, on families with children and on young people at the beginning of their careers", he declares.
He also said that, if he wins the elections, "170,000 more families will be exempt from paying personal income tax".
"On the other hand, we will increase the liquidity of micro, small and medium enterprises, ending once and for all the Special Payment on Account", he adds.
In his message, the Socialist leader begins by rejecting the PSD's thesis that the increase in the tax burden also means an increase in taxes.
"When we talk about the tax burden we are not only talking about taxes but also Social Security contributions".
In this context, António Costa points out that Social Security contributions grow with employment and salaries".
"And in these six years, as unemployment has halved and salaries have increased, the revenue from Social Security contributions has grown, despite the fact that my Government has not raised the contribution rate of either workers or companies. It is this component of the social contribution that has led to the increase in the tax burden. It is not the taxes", he argues.
On the contrary, "the weight of taxes in the GDP, in the economy, has decreased by one percentage point".
"We were not the ones who made the huge tax increase that we all still remember. We did the opposite and we have been dismantling it. For example: in VAT, we lowered the VAT for restaurants and we lowered the VAT on electricity," he says.
On IRS, according to António Costa, his executive ended progressively from 2016 "the surcharge, thus returning 800 million euros to families".
"But we also started, in 2018, splitting the tax brackets. 340 million euros more were returned to families. For companies, we lowered the CIT for all those that strengthened equity and that invested in innovation and that invested in the interior," he adds.
