60 Ideas for Europe

European Taxes

We should seriously consider the introduction of a “European VAT” and a “European Income Tax” which would go directly towards financing the EU. These taxes would substitute a part of the VAT contributions and a part of the direct contributions from each member state. These new taxes would play a great role in increasing citizens’ awareness of forming part of the EU. At the same time, they would in no way increase the tax burden borne either by companies or by individual citizens. This would be the case since the contributions in the form of the two new EU taxes would be deducted from the contributions to be made directly to each Member State.
