Mothers' bonus, the mockery of extra taxes and the boomerang risk. This reduces the single allowance


By John

The government's provision on the mothers' bonus risks becoming a political case. The measure concerns permanent workers with at least two children under the age of ten. Social security contributions are deductible and this means that they are subtracted from the gross income by reducing the taxable income tax. A mechanism incredibly not considered by the technicians who set up the measure to support female workers. In short, resources that arrive from one side but which, inevitably, exit from the other. In fact, the gross income involves an increase in the ISEE, the latter instrument which is used to define the amount of the single allowance (tax-free measure).

The Fisac ​​Cgil study

The cut in contributions envisaged by the so-called working mothers bonus (which depending on income levels could be 2.19%, 3.19% or 9.19%, within the limit of 250 euros per month) would not translate into an equal increase in net salary. This is highlighted by a Fisac ​​Cgil analysis, published in the Corriere della Sera.

Bonetti, Action: “The mothers' bonus is a hasty and botched measure”

«We could say to the government “We told you so”, the mothers' bonus is a hasty and bungled measure. Unfortunately it would be of little use, the damage has been done. We reiterate our proposal: the government uses the resources of the mothers bonus well to increase the single allowance for all working mothers. All increases on the allowance are tax-free.” Thus on social media the deputy group leader of Action – Per – Renew Europe in the Chamber, Elena Bonetti.
