Tax Payment is Taking Responsibility Towards the State, PM Zaev Says

In order to create a solid healthcare system, modern education, build new hospitals, schools and kindergartens, construct new roads and infrastructure, in order to have more funds for pensions and wages in the public administration, for social aid and all forms of state financial aid, paying taxes must be an imperative in our community, as well as humanity and collective maturity, said Prime Minister Zoran Zaev as he addressed the audience during his speech for the Day of tax administration workers and tax system.

This is a matter of a basic function in a country, Zaev said, and through this the state provides normal functions, he added, pointing out that the public revenue is the driving force behind the public services.

“Citizens must complete their obligations toward the state in order for the state to be able to give back. I sincerely believe in the citizens of the Republic of Macedonia. This year, we have marked excellent results, and we saw an increase of the tax income by 7% compared to last year. This success is your success, the tax administration workers and the Public Revenue Office. I would like to congratulate you on your excellent work,” Zaev pointed.

By introducing the reform E-Personal tax, the Public Revenue Office of Macedonia has made a bold choice in stepping closer to the standards of the European tax administration institutions.

“In January of 2019 we will stand together, facing a new challenge – introducing the fair taxing system. The goal is to create a fair community that offers equal opportunities for all. It is fair that those who earn more will help those who are unable to provide for their families and with that to take part and contribute to the economic segment,” PM Zaev concluded.

He added that the finances coming from the fair tax system will be used to reduce poverty and activate people of the socially vulnerable categories in the labor market.
