Centre Party Slash Child Benefits for High Income Earners

Published tisdag 25 mars 2008 kl 12.52
Centre Party Leader Maud Olofsson

The leader of the Swedish Centre Party Maud Olofsson has suggested that high income earners lose the monthly child benefit of 173 US dollars currently available to all parents, regardless of income.

The government is currently phasing in various tax reforms and according to Maud Olofsson, it is high time that child benefits be income related. A suggestion from another member of her party, Annika Qarlsson, is that anyone with an annual income of over 40 000 US dollars should not receive child benefits so that poor families who really do need the extra income may get a rise in benefits. General Swedish child benefits were introduced in 1948 and have been considered a corner stone in Swedish family policies.
