The budget revenue from the so-called social tax, which is charged on high salaries, will be used to finance health care and social security, informs LETA agency. Representatives of the Finance Ministry said that instead of abolishing the solidarity tax, the government has decided to transform it in order to provide the necessary financing for health care.

Under the draft amendments to the Solidarity Tax Law, one percentage point of the solidarity tax revenues will be spent on health care financing and six percentage points will be added socially insured persons’ pension capital. Also, 10.5 percentage points of the solidarity tax revenues will be paid into the personal income tax account. The remaining part of the solidarity tax revenues will be paid into the pensions special budget.
