Chile’s Chamber of Deputies Passes Bill To Tax „Super-Rich“

Lawmakers voted 105- 18 in favor of the bill, and there were 26 abstentions. The deputies remarked on the importance of the tax since hundreds of low and middle-income families have seen their finances affected amid the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, the largest fortunes continue to increase.

So. I finally read the NYT Trump tax story because I wanted to see what line was being reported for taxes owed and I came across this about the $750 in 2016 and 2017. Per the NYT own story, Trump actually paid to the US Treasury $1 million in 2016 and $4.2 million in 2017.

The President’s Taxes: Long-Concealed Records Show Trump’s Chronic Losses and Years of Tax Avoidance

Donald J. Trump paid $750 in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency. In his first year in the White House, he paid another $750.

He had paid no income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years — largely because he reported losing much more money than he made.

Five takeaways from Supreme Court’s rulings on Trump tax returns

Roberts laid out a list of factors for courts to consider when weighing such subpoenas but stressed that the list was not comprehensive, noting how rarely interbranch disputes have come before the court over the nation’s history.

“Other considerations may be pertinent as well; one case every two centuries does not afford enough experience for an exhaustive list,” the chief justice wrote

Supreme Court grants NY prosecutors access to Trump’s tax returns, rebuffs Congress

The Supreme Court in a split decision on Thursday granted New York state prosecutors access to President Trump’s tax returns, even as it shielded a trove of his financial records from Congress.

The justices upheld a Manhattan district attorney subpoena for eight years of Trump’s financial documents, including his personal and corporate tax returns. But they declined to grant Congress access to records subpoenaed by a trio of Democratic-led House committees.

Others see a cynical political gambit at play, as with the return of the coronavirus: Netanyahu is either aiming for a crisis that will allow him to call for an early election while blaming Gantz and other rivals on the left for the failure of his annexation move – or is actually banking on a crisis, foreign, domestic or both, that will allow him to seize emergency powers, delay his trial, seize control of the legal system and so on and so forth.

The Pentagon Budget Still Rising, 40 Years Later

In our case, of course, the definition of “national security” is subsidizing the U.S. military-industrial complex, year in, year out, at levels that should be (but aren’t) beyond belief. In 2019, Pentagon spending is actually higher than it was at the peak of either the Korean or Vietnam conflicts and may soon be — adjusted for inflation — twice the Cold War average.

Yes, in those four decades, there were dips at key inflection points, including the ends of the Vietnam War and the Cold War, but the underlying trend has been ever onward and upward. Just why that’s been the case is a subject that almost never comes up here.

Under Sanders’s plan, the government would increase a firm’s corporate tax rate if its highest-paid employee earns more than 50 times what its average worker does — an attempt to encourage companies to distribute their profits more equitably.

The plan would apply only to companies with more than $100 million in annual revenue.

Why Pakistan’s economy is sinking

For decades, the Pakistani authorities have been unable to establish effective tax collection practices. Currently, only one percent of Pakistanis pay their taxes and the country has one of the lowest tax-to-GDP ratios in the world.

Successive governments have avoided imposing stricter controls because they have been staffed by members of the same elites that are actively evading taxes. They are able to do so not only because of government inaction but also because of widespread corruption. In fact, it is cheaper for them to bribe than to pay their dues.

Pakistan to present austerity-centred budget following IMF deal

(11.06.2019)

Analysts have warned the IMF deal would likely come with myriad restrictions that could bridle Khan’s grand promises to build an Islamic welfare state, as the country is forced to tighten its purse strings.

Pakistan’s increasing economic woes also come as the country is facing possible sanctions from the Financial Action Task Force — a money-laundering monitor based in Paris — for failing to rein-in terror financing.

Boris Johnson’s radical plan to slash income tax for 3million by raising 40p rate threshold to £80,000

Mr Johnson has drawn up radical plans to increase the point at which people start paying the higher rate of income tax from £50,000 to £80,000, pulling hundreds of thousands of people out of the 40p band entirely.

The move, which will cost an estimated £9.6 billion a year, will save people thousands of pounds on their tax bill. It will be funded from the £26.6 billion of „fiscal headroom“ that is currently set aside by the Treasury for no-deal preparations.

Donald Trump’s tax returns show that he lost so much money in the mid-1980s to 1990s that he paid no income tax for eight out of 10 years during that period, according to a new report.

The income tax records were obtained by The New York Times, and represent the most detailed look into the president’s personal taxes yet, after years in which Mr Trump had sought to keep the documents private.

Lettre de Jean-Luc Mélenchon au Premier ministre

Jean-Luc Mélenchon vient d’adresser au Premier ministre le courrier suivant :

Monsieur le Premier ministre,

Mercredi 20 mars, votre gouvernement a annoncé la mobilisation des militaires de la force Sentinelle dans le cadre des prochaines manifestations des « gilets jaunes » qui auront lieu demain samedi 23 mars. Cette décision a sidéré de nombreux républicains. En effet, le maintien de l’ordre n’est pas une tâche dévolue à l’armée. L’armée a pour charge de défendre la nation contre ses ennemis. En aucun cas des manifestants ne peuvent être considérés comme des ennemis de l’intérieur.

Ce vendredi 22 mars, le gouverneur militaire de Paris, le général Bruno Leray, a déclaré que ces militaires pourront « aller jusqu’à l’ouverture du feu ». De tels propos sont graves et nourrissent une escalade mortelle. Ils mettent la cohésion du pays et celle du lien entre l’armée et la Nation à la merci de n’importe quelle provocation.

Mobile phone footage shared on social media showed a protester crouched in pain as medics tended to his severely-damaged hand.

Police said the grenades, which scatter rubber pellets and emit tear gas, were used to disperse protesters after they tried to storm the parliament building.

Government Trying to Sneak Death Tax Through by Stealth

MPs may have so little to do that the Commons was adjourned before 3.30pm yesterday, but that hasn’t stopped the Government from trying to sneak a new death tax through on the sly. They are laying a statutory instrument today which will increase the ‘probate’ fees – which families have to pay when administering someone’s estate after they die – from £215 up to a potential £6,000. This is a death tax in all but name, hitting grieving families with a massive bill as they go through the difficult process of dealing with a relative’s death…

‘The gilets jaunes are unstoppable’: Christophe Guilluy on the cultural divide driving the yellow vests.

„One illustration of this cultural divide is that most modern, progressive social movements and protests are quickly endorsed by celebrities, actors, the media and the intellectuals. But none of them approve of the gilets jaunes. Their emergence has caused a kind of psychological shock to the cultural establishment. It is exactly the same shock that the British elites experienced with the Brexit vote and that they are still experiencing now, three years later.“

EU planning to hit small businesses in UK with VAT bombshell after Brexit, MPs warn

Brussels is preparing to reduce the threshold at which businesses start paying VAT from a turnover of £85,000 to £76,700 in a bid to „harmonise“ tax systems.

MPs on the EU scrutiny committee warned Britain will have to accept the move if it comes into force after Brexit in March 2019 because it will lose its right to veto the plans.

Macron, austerity, repression and the Yellow Vest revolt in France

So let us be very clear. It is not the Yellow Vests that are xenophobic and racist, but increasingly large components of the French elite. The elites will not hesitate for a moment, when the post-Macron era comes, to entrust power to the far right if necessary.

That is to say, if their odiously iniquitous capitalist order were really threatened; if the French people, thirsty for justice, their hearts full of renewed hopes, shouting for their joy in regaining their dignity, gathered in revolt and aware of their strength, managed to get back on their feet, to become masters of a collective future of solidarity and progress, then the elite would look to the ultra-right parties as their solution.
