Polish Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz was quoted as saying on Friday that the she wanted to use the easing of European Union fiscal controls on Warsaw to cut taxes, as her party seeks to win back support ahead of an autumn parliamentary election.
“I plan to lower taxes, especially the personal ones. I will present the project in autumn together with the whole program,” Kopacz told daily Rzeczpospolita.
“One of the proposals concerning the tax solutions will be an alternative to the tax-free allowance.”
The European Commission recommended in May that Poland no longer be subject to procedures aimed at cutting its budget deficits, leaving more leeway in budget construction.
