PM proposes abolishing “super gross” wage

Prime Minister Andrej Babiš proposed the abolition of the “super gross” wage, as the base for calculating employee income tax, in the Chamber of Deputies on Monday.

The proposal would see income tax cut from the present 20 percent to 15 percent for low and medium income groups. People with an income of over 139,000 crowns a month would pay a 23 percent tax.

The abolition would be valid for two years only, allowing for changes depending on the country’s post-pandemic economic development.
