與 “Tax bomb theory fake news” ノ “Tax tsunami”… Intensification of the tax evasion

As the general real estate tax (special property tax) bills for this year began to be sent out, the political circles faced off with a ‘tax bomb’ workshop.

Although the tax base for the property tax on one house per household has been raised from 900 million won to 1.1 billion won, the property tax rate has risen to a maximum of 6.0%, and as housing prices, official land prices, and fair market price ratios have risen one after another, the number of people paying the property tax this year has risen to 947,000. This is an increase of 280,000 from 667,000 last year.

While the ruling party is of the position that “it is less than the ‘Sonata’ tax,” the people’s power is attacking, calling it a “punitive tax tsunami.”

On the 23rd, Song Young-gil, president of the Democratic Party of Korea, said on SNS, “The tax on a house of 2.6 billion won is lower than the tax on a Sonata mid-size car. It’s not a target,” he said.

Rep. Ki-hyung Oh said, “The case of ‘retired people living in Gangnam’ that appears as a regular in the tax bomb theory is a case of distorting the facts.” is alleviated,” he explained.

However, there is also the concern that the real estate public will be touched during the presidential election.

As the real estate issue, which is the most painful finger of the current government, is once again aroused among the people due to the imposition of the tax, there is a concern that more weight is placed on the theory of regime responsibility and replacement.

It is analyzed that the approval rating of presidential candidate Lee Jae-myung, who is stuck in the box and is unable to find any significant upward momentum, may also have a negative impact.

“Real estate is the most disappointing part of the current government, and the last re-election was also defeated because of real estate, isn’t it a strong analysis,” said one passport dignitary. “He said.

There is also an atmosphere in which the media and opposition parties react more sensitively, saying that they are driving the taxation of slavery into a ‘tax bomb’ frame.

An official from the Democratic Party said, “The taxation tax does not affect the lives of ordinary people at all, but the media and opposition parties are creating a tax bomb theory.

The People’s Power took the lead in the battle against public opinion, saying that a ‘tax tsunami’ had begun.

Min-guk Kang, spokesperson for the floor, said in a commentary on the same day, “This year, the number of people who are subject to the death tax payment increased by 42% compared to last year, reaching 1 million, and the amount of tax notified was 5.7 trillion won, which more than tripled from last year.” The ‘tax tsunami’ created by the ‘punitive comprehensive real estate tax’ is truly a catastrophe.”

Earlier, Rep. Hong Jun-pyo said on SNS, “Taxation of the property tax on a single real estate is unconstitutional because it is a double taxation. It is not a tax, it is looting.” ” he criticized.

The promises of real estate taxation by both the ruling and opposition presidential candidates are also being highlighted once again.

Democratic presidential candidate Lee Jae-myung insisted on strengthening the holding tax with the ‘land tenure tax’, while candidate Yoon Seok-yeol, the People’s Power, showed a contradictory stance, announcing a policy to ease the holding tax, saying that he would completely reconsider the existing property tax.
