Sabón (A Coruña), September 23 (EFE).- The president of the Xunta, Alfonso Rueda, announced this Friday a 50% discount on property taxes in Galicia, adding 25% to the 25% already implemented.
Rueda gave a conference at the Economic Forum of La Voz de Galicia entitled ‘Competitiveness and Innovation for a Galicia with more certainty’ and advanced that the budget to be presented to Parliament on Tuesday includes “more than 13,000 million euros” with specific items that “are going to protect people “.
In particular, it advanced that according to the Galician Tax Agency, the wealth tax by the holders of assets or rights worth more than 2 million euros, which must be paid, will have a bonus that will reach 50%.
Currently, he is already enjoying, as he says, a bonus of 25%, to which another 25% will be added until he reaches the aforementioned 50%.
“It is much better to reduce taxes than to increase them”, he defended and said that Galicia has “an incentive” to create “a favorable climate” on certain issues such as demographic challenges.
Asked if he would lower taxes on energy, which are at the highest level in Galicia, he said the budget was still being drawn up, although he clarified that “the junta cannot reach everything or do everything alone.”
At the conference, Rueda considered that society has a series of “challenges” that are “not easy at all”, with issues such as gas prices, inflation or the implementation of European funds, where “the only thing that is a certainty today is doubt, uncertainty».
“What has been built in recent years, in recent decades, is shaky, to say the least,” he assured.
Faced with this situation, the Galician president sees three options: a “triumphalist position that denies the dangers”, which he links, without citing it, to the government, another “catastrophist” with “more great speeches without solutions” and , finally, “Sentidino’s Way”, which is his.
