Bulgaria -Tax breaks for minimum wage earners to alleviate poverty -November 19, 2013

After talks with trade unions and parliamentary coalition, the government announced it will instate a tax refund for workers earner less than the minimum wage. The tax refund will come into force in the beginning of 2015, applying to income earned in 2014, and aims to reduce poverty. The prime minister confirmed that, even at the increased 2014 level of BGN 340 (€173) per month, the minimum wage is not enough to lift people out of poverty.
