In Sweden pays the richest at least in the tax
"In Sweden, pays the richest, at least in tax"

"Debater: Those who have a lot should pay more – but then it is no longer"

"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."

"the DEBATE. Nordea chairman Björn Wahlroos has according to the Swedish Tax agency for the years 2014, 2015 and 2016 paid 109 million in tax. "

"It sounds great, like most of you probably, but in terms of revenue, it is just 16.5 per cent. During the three years he earned a total of 665 million sek, of which 21 million is the income of the services and 644 million of equity. "

"This can be compared with the ordinary wage and salary earners pay significantly more in taxes. Something is simply fundamental flaw in our tax system, which essentially redistributes from low - and middle-income earners to high income earners and the super-rich as Wahlroos."

"In the political debate, we must, however, continually told that we have a progressive tax system. In several of the parliamentary parties lost their program about the tax shall be levied after viability and most swedes include the principle that those who earn more should percentage to pay more in taxes. "

"But of the total tax revenues of approximately sek 2 000 billion represents the progressive part, the income tax for those earning more than 38 000 dollars a month, only about 60 billion, thus only a few percent of the total tax revenue. "

"Yet it is on this income tax, with its marginal effects, as such a big part of the skattediskussionen is. Those with high incomes pay too much tax to do several batches. "

"Of tax revenues constitutes the tax that is taken out with a degree of progressiveness of a very small part. A review of the overall tax revenues provide, on the contrary, the image of a tax system that is regressive. "

"The biggest part of the rot and rut deductions go to groups with high incomes, which means that low income earners will have to pay for höginkomsttagares cleaning and köksrenoveringar. In the same way, ränteavdragen to low - and middle-income earners may pay höginkomsttagares housing costs. "

"Also the property tax that has been converted into a municipal fee works regressive, that is to say, the higher the income and the larger the villa or mansion you own the lower the percentage fee in relation to income. Most pay low - and middle-income earners in the normalvillor."

"The largest tax revenues come from vat (about 450 billion) and municipal tax (about 700 billion). It is also these taxes are the most burdensome for most taxpayers. They are flat, thus equal for all, but the effect is very different for different individuals. In fact, it is låginkomsttagaren who pay the greatest share of their income in council tax and in the same way with the vat. "

"Låginkomsttagaren have to use a much larger proportion of their income than höginkomsttagaren to the consumption of the most necessary, like food and other everyday products. "

"Overall, the conclusion that our tax system has essentially a regressive profile, the higher the income the less the percentage paid in tax. "

"the Example with Björn Wahlroos, tax payments are a telling example. In most other developed countries are either inheritance or wealth tax, sometimes supplemented with a progressive property tax. "

"In Sweden all these taxes that have had a progressive redistributive element abolished. That the gaps have grown is, therefore, essentially a logical consequence of the tax system design."

"It is now high time to take partiprogrammens jämlikhetsretorik seriously and let those who have much to pay more. Instead of a tax system that places the heaviest burdens on low - and middle-income earners must progressiviteten in the tax system to be strengthened. "

"It is not reasonable that a high-income earners as Björn Wahlroos pay only 16-17% in taxes, a level far below the ordinary wage and salary earners. "

"Per Sundgren, Chairman of the Foundation Jämlikhetsfonden"

"Sweden has a progressive tax system, according to our politicians. In several of the parties ' programmes, it says that the tax shall be levied after viability and most swedes include the principle that those who earn more should percentage to pay more in taxes. But the reality is different, according to the debater."
