Smer's Šulaj heading to tax directorate

THE FORMER shadow finance minister of the ruling Smer party, Igor Šulaj, should replace the current director of the Slovak Tax Directorate Mária Machová, the SME daily wrote.

The final decision on the nomination should be made by the Coalition Council and later by the government.

Šulaj was a key figure behind Smer's proposals for a change in the tax system prior to the general elections. Among other proposals, he suggested setting a so-called millionaire tax at 25 percent, higher taxation for dominant companies, natural monopolies, and banks, as well as the taxation of dividends and a return to two VAT rates.
