The justification of the bill posted on parliament’s website identifies its goals as legal harmonisation, the reduction of administrative burdens on taxpayers as well as enabling the return of employees eligible for elderly pension to the labour market through tax and contribution rebates.
The bill would also introduce a special 25% tax on organisations that aid migration to contribute to government spending on the handling of migration.
Revenue from the tax will be spent exclusively on border protection measures, according to the bill. István Hollik, spokesman of the allied ruling parties, called the special tax a “minimum requirement”.
He insisted that organisations associated with US billionaire George Soros spend “stellar amounts” to “promote migration and flood Europe with immigrants”.
