Brexit a reason to cut taxes says Donohoe
Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe believes that Brexit is a reason to cut taxes further in order to stay competitive.
Speaking last Thursday morning at the INM Events Budget 2019 Breakfast in Dublin, Donohoe said the country's competitiveness in a post-Brexit era will depend on his ability to reduce income tax.
He said "economic buffering" had started, but the growing gaps in our infrastructure must be the key focus in the years ahead.
"I've continued to stand by my view that it's not sustainable, and increasingly won't be competitive, to say that you can be on a normal, average wage here in Ireland and already be on a higher rate of income tax," he said.
"I have done that because we have to address this issue over time," added the Minister.
