Elisabeth Svantesson, the Moderates’ economic policy spokesperson, wants to see broad tax reform during the next period of government, preferably in agreement with the Social Democrats, but otherwise with the centre-right alliance alone.
The principle will be that reform should reward effort, minimise discrimination and close loopholes, and a review of labour, capital and consumption taxes needs to be carried out.
In Almedalen on Monday, Ms Svantesson said the starting point would be that taxes on labour would be cut, but other taxes would increase. Overall, however, the aim is that the total tax burden will decrease.
