After the federal elections, a new federal government should clearly align its compass in tax policy in favour of shares, demands Dr. Norbert Kuhn. Capital gains from share transactions should be tax-exempt again after a one-year holding period, as was the case before 2009, and a line should be drawn under the plan to introduce a financial transaction tax. These would be two valuable measures to make share ownership more attractive from a tax perspective.
The article by Dr Norbert Kuhn, which appeared as part of a new series on the Bundestag elections, was published at Going Public.
