Lower House is keen on narrowing the tax burden gap between single and dual earners
The Lower House of the Dutch Parliament has carried a motion in which the Cabinet is called upon to come up with solutions for narrowing the tax burden gap between single and dual earners. The taxation individualisation process has created a situation in which single earners with a particular family income end up paying more tax than dual earners with the same family income. The House has given the Cabinet a year to come up with a report outlining what it suggests can be done to narrow the gap.
