North Rhine-Westphalia: FDP presents property tax draft: "CDU without ambitions"

Düsseldorf (dpa / lnw) - The FDP parliamentary group is starting the new electoral period with its first draft law. On Tuesday in Düsseldorf, she decided on a property tax model for North Rhine-Westphalia, which is intended to relieve the burden on citizens compared to the federal government's so-called Scholz model.

The new FDP faction leader Henning Höne criticized that there was no consensus with her previous CDU coalition partner. Unlike other Union-led states such as Lower Saxony, Bavaria or Hesse, the NRW-CDU was too "unambitious" to use better state legal options, he criticized.

The "Scholz model" developed during the grand coalition in the federal government includes automatic tax increases when real estate values ​​rise due to the scheduled revaluations of all real estate, explained Vice-Chairman Ralf Witzel. At the same time, the "maximum bureaucratic model" is a job creation measure for tax consultants and lawyers.

In the "Scholz model" the property tax is determined by the market value of a property, which is revalued every seven years - in the FDP model by constant land and building areas. The draft law is based on the model developed by the CDU and the Greens in Hesse and should therefore also be capable of being approved by the forthcoming black-green coalition in NRW, said Witzel. The FDP is open to "adjusting the details" in a cross-party bill. Without a state political decision, the property tax will also be automatically levied in NRW from 2025 according to the "Scholz model".
