PSOE moves on and gradually begins to assume positions on the tax matters of United We Can. Shifting its strategic framework to the left after the Andalusian elections is needed to respond to the demographic rise of the PP-led Pedro Sánchez. This began to become apparent with the notion of taxes on financial institutions and energy companies. New tax figures that are already in parliamentary process in the Congress of Deputies. And that, as they recall from United We Can Space, had already been rejected by PSOE. A displacement towards the positions of minority coalition ally which is repeated again. This week the socialist part of the government assimilate and defends itself as its idea of a tax on an already large fortune. From a position led by Yolanda Díaz, they celebrate, at least theoretically, that they “say publicly”. Evolving to illuminate. Beyond the first official and optimistic reaction to the movement in PSOE, these days a certain uneasiness is also expressed in the purple space as they believe that PSOE is merely “a way of copying Díaz Ayuso with the bonus of a wealth tax.” Moreno follows Bonilla’s announcement”. He remembers that only three months earlier the Socialists, together with the PP and Vox in the PSOE, voted against the United We Can Proposition law for assets worth more than 10 million euros with marginal rates between eight classes and 3.6. There was a proposal to create a tax. % and 5%. We can imagine that Moreno Bonilla’s announcement has forced a change in PSOE after repeated rejections. The purple area of the executive recalls that the process was just about keeping it in mind. In other words, the vote that opens the parliamentary route to the motion, which then goes to the relevant committee, in which partial amendments can be proposed and the original text can be substantially modified. In other words, the PSOE did not even want the issue to be debated. The excuse that the finance ministry should lead any tax reform now falls under its own weight. Parliamentary groups bill formula once to introduce new taxes on banks and energy companies. Sánchez turned the skid of Moreno’s movement and Escriva’s announcement by the president of the Junta de Andalucía that he would exempt the wealth tax was answered by a proposal from the Minister of Inclusion so that the central government could avoid these measures. La Moncloa corrected and launched the offensive; the government soon worked to remove Escriva from the debate and rejected the idea of re-centralisation, but advocated a “cohesion” that would in practice reduce the autonomy of regional governments. limits taxes. Great fortune as a rebel Socialists have found this resource as a way to respond to the PP, justifying that the resources are needed to finance measures such as reducing VAT on gas or electricity. Huge change of position on this tribute. Discrepancies among PSOE partners Although they insist the formula is open, the Treasury pointed to a specific tribute from yesterday, January 1, 2023. The discrepancy is that PSOE sees this as something temporary. But Podemos and other partners want it structural. The recent negative but, beyond celebrating a change in the state of government, Podemos has the inherent discomfort of what they define as the “disdain” or “adequacy” with which socialists had so far rejected the measure. . From this location, parliamentary sources say that on “very recent” dates, pointing out that they refer to a return to political activity after the summer, the Socialists once again told them that they were not interested in this new tax burden. do not support. But apart from all these occasions in recent times, PSOE has already refused to include a tribute with these features in the government agreement signed with United We Can and which is the roadmap of the alliance. When Pablo Iglesias raised it at the beginning of the pandemic, he did not want to consider it. The situation is now at the budget negotiating table, chaired by the Minister of Finance of both sides, María Jess Monteiro, and the Secretary of State for Social Rights, Nacho lvarez. And it has been moved from both sides that the question is still open. In other words, what is agreed is not so much from an economic perspective, but in a political agreement to convey the message that taxes are being raised for “who has the most”. More information Notice C Monteiro intends to curb financial autonomy, but clarifies that “there is no harmonized centralization” Notice C Murcia joins the tax deduction and reduces personal income tax by 4.1%. Monteiro confirms the creation of a new tax on great fortune from 2023. The formula is undefined. From an increase in personal income tax on very high incomes to a new tax rate that the socialists tentatively and their structural partners want. What will not happen is the root cause of the controversy over wealth tax reform. PSOE feels uncomfortable debating this tax that the government of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero suppressed, accusing it of lack of adequacy, efficiency and equity. That is why they want to guide the fiscal response to PP through formulas complementary to Patrimony.
