He affirms that the Executive will work "on the taxes that exist, not on new tax figures"
MADRID, 9 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Minister of Finance and Public Function, María Jesús Montero, reported this Friday that the Government is going to try to present the new General State Budgets, corresponding to the year 2023, "at the end of this month of September or the beginning of October".
In an interview on the program 'Hoy por hoy' on Cadena Ser, collected by Europa Press, the head of the Treasury has indicated that, a priori, she perceives "a good disposition of the different political formations" to be able to agree on the new accounts.
"Families are stronger if they have new Budgets and we will have more capacity to put money where we need it if we have new Budgets", defended Montero.
In fiscal matters, the person in charge of the Treasury has explained that new tax measures are not proposed, but "that the taxes that exist cause a greater yield" --they do not necessarily have to undergo important modifications-- so that all citizens contribute according to capacity and receive According to the need.
In this sense, and although the Government is seeking a "fair" tax reform so that the system stops pivoting in the middle class, the Minister of the Treasury has stressed that the will is to accompany the moment in which we are living, marked now by the price rise.
As an example, Montero recalled that one of his claims in environmental matters was to raise the taxation of diesel, since "it unjustifiably had a differential with gasoline." Well, now that fuel is being discounted, Montero believes that "it is not the time to launch any new taxation in this regard."
In energy matters, the Minister of the Treasury highlighted the role that Spain is playing in Europe: "It is the first time that we see clearly that a president intervenes in European leadership," the minister highlighted.
In this sense, he has praised that the policy that President Pedro Sánchez has followed has been anticipatory in many of the elements that Europe is now evaluating. "Hopefully I will adopt them as soon as possible," the minister stressed.
In addition, Montero has highlighted the plan that Minister Teresa Ribera is preparing based on the proposals of experts and the autonomous communities and municipalities to achieve the consumption reduction objective set with Brussels.
