Tax on childless - necessity or simple extortion

Citizens of Ukraine of 30 years or older who do not have children will pay 17% tax on personal income, regardless of income level. If a family has more than three children the tax rate will be 10.5%. Authors of the bill assure that these norms must increase budget revenues and boost the birth rate. But the Parliament is not yet ready to adopt the bill that provides for such innovations as changes in the tax structure does not improve the development of social infrastructure, reports Kommersant-Ukraine.

Bill N10112, submitted to the Parliament provides for the revision of tax rates on personal income.  In particular, increasing the tax burden - 17% - for incomes that exceed 10 times the minimum wage, and for childless Ukrainians who have reached 30 years.

The exception will be childless disabled of I-III groups. Families that have one or two children would pay taxes at ordinary rate of 15%, three or four (the youngest one should reach three years) - 10%, five or more - 5%, regardless of income level.

The authors of innovations also propose to return the Soviet tax on bachelors, singles and childless citizens, which is not known in Europe.

Additional revenues that would replenish the budget, according to the authors of the idea can be up to 800 million UAH.
