Opposition Agrees to Phase-out Property Taxes

Published tisdag 4 juli 2006 kl 11.50
The alliance party leaders present their property tax plan

As annual politics week continues the island of Gotland, Sweden’s four party opposition alliance has reached an agreement on phasing out property taxes.

The issue has been a obstacle for the four parties.

In recent years homeowners here have complained more and more about the burden of rising property taxes. The alliance parties say if they win September’s elections, property taxes would be frozen next year, rather than the current planned increase, and a ceiling would be imposed.

The goal is a total phase-out during 2008. Under the compromise the state tax would be replaced by a municipal fee.
