According to the chairman of the Center Party Jüri Ratas, it is necessary to start a debate on tax reform, and to discuss the topic honestly, concretely and reasonably.

“This topic, of course, will not arouse great enthusiasm. However, it is clear that with today’s tax burden, many important problems remain unresolved, or are exacerbated over the years,” Ratas said.

According to him, the Center Party still considers it necessary to introduce a graduated income tax, as it will help create a more cohesive society.

According to the leader of the centrists, in the context of the tax debate, it is worth weighing the proposal of the Minister of Health and Labor Tanel Kiik to introduce a tax on care insurance, due to its receipts, expenses related to the care sector would be covered.

“For example, a 2% tax, divided between an employee and an employer, would partly help to solve the problem of tens of thousands of families in Estonia – how to provide decent care for elderly loved ones,” Ratas said.
