New era in the tax system! Cigarette detail that attracts attention
We will switch from the relative taxation model with a high inflationary direction to the minimum fixed weight model. It is planned to increase the share of direct taxes in income by regulating the base and tax rates.
The Ministry of Treasury and Finance is making a significant change in the tax system within the scope of combating inflation. With the work carried out by the Revenue Administration, the inflationist model with high relative taxation, as in the European Union countries, is transitioned to a minimum fixed weighted model.
In the current system, when the price of a product increases, the tax also increases, so cost inflation rises. With the new model, both income will be stabilized and inflation pressure will decrease.
NEW REFORMS IN ECONOMY: FIRST STEP TAXES
Head of Revenue Administration Bekir Bayrakdar, "Tax regulation is made within the scope of macroeconomic reforms. Within the scope of the fight against inflation, we switch to a minimum fixed-weighted model as in the EU countries. When there is a raise, more taxes are charged. In the long run, we get rid of inflationary pressure, "he said.
REGULATION DECISION TO TAX RATES
It is also planned to rearrange the base and tax rates and to increase the share of direct taxes in revenues. Ineffective exceptions, discounts and exemptions will be lifted. In the next step, it is aimed to increase the fixed taxes according to the change in the general level of prices by combining income and corporate taxes under a single law.
DISPUTES WILL BE REMOVED
Legal regulations will be made to reduce tax compliance costs, resolve disputes in a short time and increase voluntary compliance of tax penalties. Tax incentives will be evaluated together with their economic and social effects. General and sectoral analysis will be made for tax burden and income estimates.
WHAT IS NISPY AND LEGAL TAX?
Relative tax is based on the rate, such as the income tax deducted from the employee, and the fixed tax is the tax collected from everyone equally, not at different rates without making any discrimination between the taxpayers. With the decision published last month, the relative tax on cigarettes was reduced from 67 percent to 63 percent. Fixed and minimum fixed taxes on cigarettes were kept constant.
CIGARETTE EXAMPLE ...
With the arrangement made, there was no need for a price increase in cigarettes. If the relative rate was not lowered and the fixed taxes increased, the effect on inflation would have been between 50 and 100 basis points. The minimum fixed amount guarantees tax collection if cigarette consumers prefer cheaper cigarettes. The relative tax provides a proportional tax on cigarettes sold at high prices.
