Analysts say proposed payroll tax cuts are cosmetic

PAYROLL taxes for the self-employed might be reduced starting next year, the daily SME reported.

Labour Minister Ludovít Kaník said that taxes paid by the average, self-employed Slovak to cover health insurance costs could drop from 4.4 percent to 2.8 percent of their income.

Liberal economist Martin Chren from the F A Hayek foundation says payroll tax reform would be successful only if reduces all payroll taxes by at least 50 percent.
