FinMin official: Gov’t will not accept any reduction in tax-exempt ceiling

Anyone can bring any issue he wants on the table, but that does not mean it will be accepted. For us, the issue of tax-exempt ceiling is closed, we will not bring it back, we will not accept any reduction in the tax-exempt ceiling,” a Finance ministry official told reporters ahead of a morning meeting with representatives of the institutions to discuss public finances on Monday.

The ministry official said that all issues related with the second review of the program will be closed in November or early December within the timetable set by the government.
