Few to Benefit from Frozen Property Taxes

Published måndag 21 augusti 2006 kl 11.12

With less than a month to Sweden’s general elections, campaign posters have gone up around the country.

While the polls show the opposition center-right alliance has regained its lead over the government and its allies, Swedish Television News reports that one of the opposition’s high-profile proposals would benefit relatively few Swedes. The alliance wants to immediately freeze property taxes. This would be a first step in abolishing what is a very unpopular system, but the four parties have not reached agreement on how such a reform could be financed.

According to the report, under the initial plan only 15 municipalities in the country, all in the Greater Stockholm region, would actually see lower property taxes. In response, Center Party leader Maud Olofsson defends the proposal, saying it is in just those municipalities where there is a problem.
