Gov’t mulling extending taxation base

The government is mulling the elimination of tax exemptions for some categories of income, in order to fill out the void that exists between revenues and expenditures “in the mainstay scenario” for next year’s budget, and a new way of calculating excises, Voinea told Gandul Live. Asked whether he supports the introduction of the “Fenechiu tax,” Fenechiu being the former Transportation Minister who proposed the hiking of the fuel excise by EUR 0.10 per liter in order to finance the construction of highways, Voinea answered: “It remains to be seen.” “What I do not find alright in what concerns the excises is something else: namely this determination of income on October 1. There is no plausible reason for which the excises are linked to the exchange rate posted on October 1,” he said. At the same time, the owners of constructions not listed as buildings, constructions such as pools and parking lots, will be forced to pay a tax starting next year, the expansion of the taxation base being agreed by the government with the IMF, official sources stated for Mediafax. The tax will be collected from both physical and juridical persons that own such properties.
