Prime Minister Iveta Radičová has met representatives of artists and self-employed people who are opposing planned changes to the tax and payroll tax system prepared by the Labour and Finance Ministries, the Hospodárske Noviny daily reported.

During the meeting Radičová admitted that some of the planned measures might not go through parliament in the way currently proposed in the reform. She announced that she had already asked the Finance Ministry to modify the measures in question, but without endangering state budget revenues.

Because some of the changes require amendment of the Copyright Law, Finance Ministry officials are currently cooperating with their counterparts from the Ministry of Culture.
