Albanian citizens will pay more starting from January 2018.
The Minister of Finance, Arben Ahmetaj presented on Monday during the discussions of the state budget 2018 in the Parliamentary Committees, a new progressive taxation not only for the wages, but even in other income.
"Progressive taxation will include the income generated on a taxable basis, not as now fragmented. Each income will be calculated as a whole in the tax period and will be set above the rate," declared the minister.
So far only wages were taxed on a progressive basis, while for other income there was a fixed tax rate of 15%.
