No room for radical tax cuts - PM

Polish PM Donald Tusk
The Polish government cannot introduce radical tax cuts as it would prevent it from providing an adequate level of state services to citizens, PM Donald Tusk told broadcaster Polsat News.

Poland "cannot radically lower taxes, because then it would have to reduce to some absurd minimum state services or social benefits, which are low anyway in Poland," Tusk said. "Today Poland has no room for some tax revolution."

Asked about any potential changes to the tax system, Tusk said his economic views are liberal.

But "Poland still shows a not too good level of state and public services" Tusk said noting that Poland stands out positively among the EU states in terms of taxes and other fees collected, but at the same time it spends relatively little money on citizens.

"In this sense, we are maybe still too liberal today, because most people, especially those in a more difficult situation, have expectations regarding not taxes, but more state services and of better quality," he said.
