Verringerung der Überbesteuerung durch heimliche Steuererhöhungen dringend erforderlich


Author Info

Registered author(s):


    Bei steigenden Einkommen führt die "kalte Progression" des Einkommensteuertarifs für den Steuerzahler dazu, dass seine Einkommensteuer automatisch stärker zunimmt als das Einkommen selbst. Diese "heimlichen Steuererhöhungen" werden 2008 und 2009 infolge der nominalen Lohnerhöhungen zunehmen, da eine entsprechende Tarifanpassung nicht realisiert wurde. Nach Ansicht von Dieter Dziadkowski, ehemals Mitglied der Bareis-Kommission, wird insbesondere der inzwischen zu geringe Grundfreibetrag zur Steuerfreistellung des Existenzminimums zu verfassungswidrigen Belastungen führen. Zur Behebung der Verwerfungen wäre eine Regelung notwendig, die den Einkommensteuertarif der inflationären Entwicklung laufend anpasst.
