José Luis Ros says that the reduction of the IBI that sells the PP "is in any case a freeze that breaches its electoral commitment"
The municipal group of Citizens has voted in favor of the 2020 tax ordinance package proposed by the San Pedro del Pinatar Government team, even though it considers it âinsufficientâ, since âit means maintaining the overall collection of taxes in them levels of 2019 â, explained the local orange spokesman, José Luis Ros.
Citizens believe that the tax rate of the IBI "should have been reduced to a greater extent, because what has been done now is not a reduction, it is a freeze at best," Ros added.
In addition, the reduction of the tax rate proposed by the government -from 0.63 to 0.61-, âbreaches the electoral promise of the PP that promised to lower it to 0.53â.
Ros said that "the PP intends to leave the IBI downgrade by the end of the legislature always thinking about the next elections, we believe that when taxes have to be lowered it is at the beginning of the mandate, so that they take effect throughout the legislature" .
Citizens have shared and supported measures such as the reduction of the table and chair tax aimed at promoting tourism activity or exemptions in works to neighbors affected by torrential rains.
"We believe that we must support our neighbors who have been severely affected by the rains, while promoting tourism, because we are a municipality that lives in this sector to a large extent," said Ros.
On the other hand, Ciudadanos has criticized that the government has not raised a brave proposal of tax reduction that reduces the total tax pressure that the Pinatarenses bear, since despite the reduction of some of the tax rates and types, the collection will be the same or superior to that of 2019 for the next year: The liberal spokesman considers that âit is due to the bad economic management of the PP, which continues to carry a very high debt and a rescue from the Ministry of Finance that prevents lower collection and really encourage activity economic in San Pedro â.
Finally, the Orange Party has criticized the electoral use made by the PP of the proposal, including even in the official documents of the City Council the explicit reference to what is an action of the PP.
