In this report the ”Difference at the margin” and in the article suggests Spencer Bastani and Håkan Selin, a new and to the public the complicated income-related property tax.
the Current municipal property tax based on 0.75% of the cadastral value with a ceiling of 8.049 crowns to be scrapped. Instead, the authors of the report on the introduction of a new type of property tax/fee whose amount varies depending on the cadastral value of Between sek 0 and sek 1,000,000 will the tax be on 0%, between 1,000,000 sek 2.000.000 sek by the treasure should be at 0.75 per cent, between 2.000.000 sek 5.000.000 sek will the tax be on 1.25 per cent and for the tax assessment value of the 5,000,000 kronor that the tax should be at 1.75 per cent.
although It is a necessary strategy, since the tax would otherwise be extremely high, but the limitation rule means that the property tax in most cases a pure income tax; the more småhusägaren earn, the higher will be the fastighetskatten.
the Proposal is so complicated that it becomes near impossible for owners of small houses to know how high the tax will be from year to year. The tax may well be raised as a result of the neighbour renovated and sold expensive (that is to say, if the assessed value increased). But depending on the taxeringsvärdets the size of the tax may also be increased if one gets promoted and receive higher pay.
To introduce a complicated and unjust tax system that increases the tax burden to 26 billion is nothing to the country's buildings stand will accept.
For those who live in a house with a tax value of sek 500,000 and family income of sek 50,000 per month real estate tax/fee be lowered from the current 3.750 sek per year to 0 per year. Good so. Villa owners would like to see a reduction in taxes. But if the same family chooses to move to a bigger city, where the tax value is set at 5 million at the same time as familjeinkomsten increasing to 70.000 per month, well then, the tax would suddenly increase to 33.600 per year.
Primarily means fastighetskatteförslaget that the money be moved from the buildings, to the people who live in condominiums and rental units with incomes over 703.000 crowns (värnskatten).
in Order to increase the legitimacy should the authors instead attempted to broaden the tax base. For example, would the tenant be able to get a similar taxeringssystem as houses, therefore a rateable value which corresponds to 75% of the market value. The property tax would then be able to remain at 0.75 per cent of the rateable value with a cap of 8.049 crowns. Thus, identical with the municipal real estate fee. In the day pay a bostadsrättsägare on Strandvägen in Stockholm not more than 1,300 per year. It is not reasonable.
When fastighetskatten was at its highest in 2007, the 13.5 billion to the treasury. Today is the tax burden from the real estate fee of 17 billion. To introduce a complicated and unjust tax system that increases the tax burden to 26 billion is nothing to the country's buildings stand will accept.
We expect that the Centre party, the Liberals, the social democrats and the Greens once and for all takes away from the increased fastighetskatter/charges on single-family homes. So far, they have chosen not to comment on the proposal. We take note of it.
