Confindustria asks for 5 billion more in cuts. The maneuver was rejected
Carlo Bonomi sensationally rejects the government maneuver. The number one of industrialists believes that the proposed 8 billion in tax cuts are too low compared to the actual needs of the country. Confindustria – reads the Messenger – asks to bring the dowry to at least 13 billion and to concentrate the resources on cutting the tax wedge through the reduction of contributions. While the general manager Francesca Mariotti, heard at the hearing, rejected the budget law, arguing that “does not take a step forward for the modernization of the country”. The hypothesis advocated by Bonomi on the cut in contributions did not end among the simulations presented yesterday by the Minister of Economy to economic managers in view of the presentation of the government’s amendment on IRPEF and IRAP cuts.
Even if a final decision has not yet been made, the direction indicated is clear. It goes towards – continues the Messenger – the reduction of tax rates (probably starting from that of 38%) which, however, would be accompanied by an intervention on employee deductions. With this measure, it would also aim to reabsorb the bonus of 100 euros (the old Renzi bonus, then increased by 20 euros) which for incomes up to 28 thousand euros is an Irpef credit. A mechanism that causes several inconveniences, such as the risk of having to repay the bonus the following year if the income threshold that entitles you to receive it is exceeded.
