The home is your home, not the politicians’ gold card

Then local politicians must find other solutions to increase the property tax for the inhabitants to make the budgets go up.

Experts in Nordea and Handelsbanken expect four interest rate hikes this year after unexpectedly high inflation.

Electricity prices are at a record high and it does not look like they will go down to normal levels right away.

The Støre government is also raising taxes for ordinary people, in stark contrast to the Solberg government, which reduced taxes and fees by NOK 34 billion.

An ordinary family paid 14,000 kroner less in taxes than if the red-greens’ tax scheme from 2013 had been continued.

We also made simplifications for the business community of NOK 28 billion. It is now the turn of ordinary people to get increased taxes and housing costs.

Today, unfortunately, there are far too many municipalities with far too high property taxes.

More taxes does not mean more welfare

The common denominator is that the mayor comes from either the Center Party or the Labor Party.

9 out of 10 municipalities that top the list for both those who take in the most and those who increased the most are governed by the two government parties.

It has something to say who governs in the municipalities, and when the left gets to decide, it goes beyond people’s wallets.

“This is not a list we want to be at the top of,” said Anette Musdalslien (Sp), mayor of Gausdal to

Unnecessary and antisocial

Under the leadership of Raymond Johansen, there is a record in property taxes, and dividends from Hafslund are enormous.

The last few years have The Oslo City Council spent almost NOK 600 million on the acquisition of ten private kindergartens.

Examples of poor management and poor prioritization of the community’s resources by the Oslo City Council illustrate how the property tax is an unnecessary and anti-social tax.

Efficient operation of municipalities creates room to collect less taxes and fees, but it seems that it is easier for the Labor Party and the Socialist People’s Party to draw the local gold card by increasing the tax on people’s homes.

It is simply political laziness to pass the bill on to the citizens.
