The Greens have confirmed their criticism of the proposal of Federal Finance Minister Christian Lindner (FDP) to compensate for cold progression. "Billions of tax reliefs, of which a lot of earnings, absolutely benefit three times as much as less earns-is not up to date," said the financial policy spokeswoman for the Greens parliamentary group, Katharina Beck, the newspapers of the editorial network in Germany (RND) Wednesday. "The other way around, it would be correct: strong shoulders would have to wear more than low -income and not disproportionately relieved."
"These really hard times hit in particular those who have little money," said the Greens Finance politician. She also criticized the rejection of over -profit tax by Lindner. "Financial politics is a troubleshooting how the desired debt brake is to be observed with this further proposal in billions in billions if the possibilities for additional revenue are blocked as well as through an over -profit tax."
The Senate in turn rejects a tax on the SuperProfits

Lindner will present cornerstones for an "Inflation Equalization Act" on Wednesday, which is particularly concerned with tax relief for citizens. Lindner wants to reduce the so -called cold progression. The term describes the effect that someone slips into a higher tax rate due to a wage increase that only compensates for inflation and ultimately has less money in their pocket in relation to purchasing power.
criticism of Lindner's plans also comes from the Left Party. "It is the opposite of precisely and socially unfair," left-wing parliamentary group leader Dietmar Bartsch told the RND newspapers. "Those who earn a lot benefit the most."
is necessary a large tax reform financed by top earners to relieve people with small and medium -sized incomes. "The tax and tax load is too high for low and normal earners- long before the exploding energy prices," said Bartsch.
SPD and the Greens would also have to prevail against the FDP blockade in the case of over-profit tax and introduce a one-off asset. "If taxes and the distribution of the crisis costs are not finally fair, the country flies apart socially," said the left-wing politician.
Outlap tax affects companies that benefit from the current energy crisis without their own performance. In Great Britain, for example, oil and gas companies have to temporarily pay 25 percent taxes on their additional profits.
