On March 6, the Sme daily reported that the ruling coalition is planning a new tax bonus that will provide Sk200 to about 100,000 taxpayers with a gross salary below Sk9,300 a month. The measure could come into effect by next year, when Slovakia plans to introduce the euro.
The ministry came up with the idea in 2005 when SDKÚ-DS MP Ivan Mikloš was Finance Minister, but it is technically demanding and the previous government failed to push for it before parliamentary elections. TASR
