France: Welcome taxes
17 July 2012
Hollande promised change.
The French are getting impatient.
“... so are these tax hikes coming or what?”
In a extraordinary session after the June parliamentary elections, the French Parliament is debating measures the ruling Socialist party wants to take in order to control the public deficit. These include a review of tax benefits for businesses and individuals, and a tax rate of 75% for certain high incomes.
