Green politician Schick called instead of tax relief plans for small income – namely in the “often strongly rising rents”. But bring a change in the tax rate anything. Rather, it would go to homes at affordable rents. Similar criticism remarked the deputy leader of the Left Group, Gesine Lötzsch. They called for a substantial increase in tax allowances. This was an important means for relieving small and medium incomes. “So if you really want to relieve the middle class, must take a definitive step, which really ask the recipients of large income to Checkout” Lötzsch said.
