Madrid joins Andalusia and will appeal to the TC the tax on large fortunes


Javier Fernández-Lasquetty, Minister of Economy, Finance and Employment of the Community of Madrid, has followed in the footsteps of the Junta de Andalucía and has announced that the Madrid Government will also appeal to the Constitutional Court the temporary tax on the fortunes of more than €3 million for invading regional powers.

“There is a impersonation of the Community of Madrid and the rest of the communities to do what they cannot get at the polls. As they fail to win the elections in Madrid, they supplant the Community and put themselves in its place”, said Lasquetty in media statements after appearing in committee at the Madrid Assembly.

This has been stated after the amendment registered by PSOE and United We Can in the Congress of Deputies in which this tax is created, and that for the Madrid Government it is a “democratic outrage” because a tax cannot be “imposed” in an amendment to a bill to create “taxes extraordinary“.

“It’s literally the wealth taxThey have not even bothered to define other tax figures”, the counselor pointed out. In addition to an “impersonation” of the Community of Madrid, Lasquetty thinks that this tax is going against “saving and investment”. “We are going to continue, we will appeal it to the Constitutional Court, and hopefully before it is approved they realize to what extent they it hurts even at the electoral level“, assured the counselor of the Madrid Government, who had already advanced that he would study filing this resource before the Constitutional.

Lasquetty has joined the criticism of the Minister of Economy, Finance and European Funds, Caroline Spainwho criticized the measure because it is “a direct attack on the financial autonomy“. “We cannot appeal it until it is approved, but we are going to do it, always looking out for the interest of the Andalusians“, assured the counselor.
