This means that the tax that is levied on all other income, without further deductions such as mortgage interest deduction and labor discounts, can be set at 55%.

At the moment, it is mainly the shareholders of multinationals who have been given ways to not only have an even lower tax rate, but even avoid it. What is actually stopping us from making the Netherlands a bit more thorough?
