Emmanuel Macron: less taxes for those who work

An income tax cut of 5 billion euros. According to Emmanuel Macron, this amount should allow a substantial reduction for households subject to this tax. “If there is a drop in taxes for middle income, I think it’s good”, rejoices at the microphone of France 3 a cashier from Rouen.

The elimination of certain tax loopholes

To finance this decline, the Head of State wants to remove tax loopholes for companies, as well as bodies and committees that he considers unnecessary. But without saying how many and which ones. Emmanuel Macron also wants the French to work more. For this, he hopes a lot from the tax exemption of overtime. But it excludes, however, extending the legal retirement age and removing a public holiday.
