"From the perspective of the implementation process, I do not see any further major challenges so far. It seems to me that the Ministry of Finance and the entire project of the Polish Deal are straightforward," Łukasz Czernicki, chief economist of the Ministry of Finance, assessed.
As he pointed out, on Monday the process of returning excessively collected income tax advances has already started, thanks to which thousands of Poles received lower salaries in January. The ministry does not expect further problems, although many experts believe that the Polish Deal is full of inaccuracies.
"From the perspective of the Ministry of Finance, there are indeed some shortcomings in the implementation process on our side. However, despite everything, the assumptions of this reform are maintained as much as possible. They are very right, because we are finally introducing some progress in the Polish tax system to earning a lot paid higher taxes and contributions, and people with lower incomes were relieved," Czernicki added.
The Polish Deal, i.e. – as the government points out – the historic reform of the tax system, entered into force at the beginning of January 2022. Then it turned out that it contributed to a reduction in salaries – even by several hundred zlotys – of thousands of Poles, mainly teachers and uniformed services, who receive salaries in advance for a given month.
