Michael Jaeger, Taxpayers Association of Europe Secretary General, in an interview for the Sunt Förnuft, the magazine of the Swedish Taxpayers Association, discussed the current efforts of the EU to further expand its tax competence and at the same time massively increase EU spending.
Jaeger stated that not only does the EU want to levy higher and new taxes, but there are also strong efforts in the EU Parliament and the EU Commission to make the EU debt, which is actually limited in time to cope with the corona pandemic, permanent. At the same time, more and more national competences are to be transferred to Brussels. This is a development that the Taxpayers’ Association cannot endorse and which could ultimately boomerang on the people and businesses of Europe.
