Ex'tax in Dutch Elections

11 Sep 2012

Dutch national elections are taking place on September 12, 2012 (the sixth election in a period of ten years). We have made an inventory of the viewpoints of the major political parties on the concept of Ex'tax. Below you will find an overview (in Dutch).

In their election programs, six out of ten parties are in favour of both higher taxes on resources and lower taxes on labour. Four of them are only addressing one aspect of Ex'tax.

There seems to be enough common ground for a shift in taxation from human resources to natural resources.
