esque had responded to a Tweet of today-journal (ZDF), in which the editors had written: "3.5 million people in Germany the top rate of tax, half of them are normal people."
literally esque writes: "Please facts instead of Felt, @ZDFheute: Who has to pay D to the "top rate of tax of 42 percent on taxable income", earned rd. 46000 euros in the month. Who has 5000-7000 euros a month, pays about 30 percent.“
Then began the great puzzles for the users: The top rate of tax pays only for those who have earned 46.000 Euro in the month? If this is not a Mistake – exactly what esque means?
On request by FOCUS Online, the SPD holds the Board first of all: "The Numbers of Saskia esque are correct." Further justification is then clear what esque means really. You can explain as follows: "Indeed, it is charged at a progressive rate of taxation in a 'normal earner' only the smallest part of the income with the top rate of tax and the respective underlying tranches of the income for this part of the applicable tax rate. Only at very high incomes, the majority of which falls within the area of the top tax rate.“Saskia esque confused top tax rate and average tax rate - with the intention of
in other words: If someone pays the top rate of tax on a part of his income, that doesn't count. Because – so Eskens logic of the average tax rate, the total income is assessed, is much lower. Still a concise combined: esque confused with intention top tax rate and average tax rate. At the same time it assumes that all others do also.
Or you want to re-educate the media? The law indicates that the production of the SPD Executive Board, tells more: "Due to the complexity of the use of the average tax rate would be much more transparent and less misleading."
esque left it, however, not the subjunctive, but created in trump cher manner for your media to berate on Twitter short-hand alternative facts. No wonder that there is nobody more to come.
fact is: Many media – and not only the ZDF – communicated the message based on a response of the Federal government to a request of the Left, accordingly. This is also nothing Special, but the simplicity is treated as such for the sake. Finally, these are the facts and the concepts with which not only politicians and experts to work. Everyone who pays taxes in Germany should be aware of.
for sure: for The sake of completeness, one could add: 3.5 million employees pay A PORTION of your income the top tax rate.quibble instead of working on the Problem
At the core of the message, this quibble does not change: in 1958, workers had to earn 20 times the average wage to pay the top rate of tax. Today, the 1.3 times of the average income is sufficient. Thus, the top rate of tax hits today, 3.5 million workers in Germany (as of 2015), even if it is for many only a grazing shot.
The actual criticism goes much further: Among the 3.5 million citizens, many members of the middle class, which are degenerate due to financial constraints, have long been the cash cow of the company are to be found.
If esque not that the Germans even understand the basics of the tax system, should give her to think that, in fact. The conclusion draws esque from this, however, cannot be the solution: the Wrong words and Figures, as correct to spend.Background
The last major Reform of the income tax rate is around 20 years: In the years 1999 to 2005, the top rate of tax was gradually reduced from 53 to 42 percent. The limit at which the top tax rate applies was, however, of 61.377 Euro (1999) on 52.152 Euro (2005) is lowered. At this level, the income remained the border until 2015 before it is adjusted for the year 2016 to the price development.
That Singles and families from the middle class are in the most demand of the German tax system, the Organisation for economic co-operation and development (OECD) refers. She warns that the German government is demanding more of its citizens than most other countries. And that the center of the society groans in particular, under the high social security contributions, so contributions to unemployment insurance, health insurance, and pension.
