Czech Coalition Parties Split On Future Tax Policy

The Czech Republic's ruling political parties have taken contrasting tax policy positions ahead of October elections.

In 2013, the country's two largest political parties, Action for Alienated Citizens (ANO) and the Czech Social Democratic Party (CSSD), formed a coalition with the smaller Christian Democratic Union - Czechoslovak People's Party (KDU-CSL).

According to the International Monetary Fund's Article IV report for the Czech Republic, the CSSD, which is presently the largest party, favors increasing spending, hiking personal and corporate taxes, and introducing a bank levy.

ANO, which is ahead of the CSSD in recent polls, favors lowering labor taxes, value-added tax, and social security levies. Meanwhile, KDU-CSL would provide tax relief for families. Both parties oppose the introduction of a bank levy, and ANO is said to oppose hiking taxes on companies.
