FinMin: Taxes may be cut

FINANCE Minister Ivan Mikloš suggested that the current 19 percent flat tax may be cut within four or five years provided the current positive economic development continues.

The daily SME wrote that Mikloš would not specify to what extent the taxes could be decreased but he said that lowering could take place in the income tax and VAT.
