On the other hand, the head of the State has ruled out any increase in taxes or a return to the TFR to compensate for the explosion in government spending. "There is a path of tax which has been decided upon, passed by a vote of the national representation, it is the one who will be held", he said, adding that"we [decided] not a crisis such as this by increasing taxes". "If we say we will raise taxes, the people do not consume, the doubt settles down and the country does not restart", does it justified. "It won't solve anything, it will discourage rather enrichment of the work".
However, it puts an option on the table : "shift, a little, for the more fortunate of us, the removal of the housing tax". "It may be in a period of crisis, something legitimate", he justified. This tax has already been removed for 80% of the population but still the highest wages in excess of 27 706 euros for a single person or 56 438 euros for a couple with two children.
"The spirit of justice, might be to say : those who pay now the tax to habitation, and for which it had not yet fallen, we can put more years to do it, because it is an exceptional moment, because it is quite legitimate, and that it is at the bottom of good sense", he adds. The housing tax should be abolished for the remaining 20% by 2023.
