The changes to the Income Tax have created many crossovers on social networks, where some users have cited posts on the social network X of President Javier Milei where it contradicts the current proposal.
The change in the non-taxable minimum of the Income Tax that the former presidential candidate of the Unión por la Patria, Sergio Massa, promoted during the election campaign remains strong at the beginning of 2024 and the Government intends to change of this through the “Bases” law
The changes tried in September by the former candidate were supported by the libertarian Javier Milei at the time.
It is worth noting that on September 29, and after a debate that ended with the intonation of the Peronist march from boxes full of union members, the Senate approved the bill of the Minister of Economy and Union for the Homeland candidate Sergio Massa on that. 800,000 workers stopped paying income tax.
Since the Massa reform, approved by a wide political spectrum, those who receive an income above the amount equivalent to 15 minimum vital and mobile wages must contribute Income, that is, 2,340,000 pesos.
The project that Milei sent to the National Congress
After the push and pull brought about by the reforms of some points of the Omnibus Law, the project titled “Personal Income Tax” will be approved, which will lead to workers receiving a non-taxable minimum of $1,350,000 gross to be paid in taxes.
In addition, the scales will be updated quarterly by the inflation index (CPI) and the powers to change the values of these scales will be delegated to the Executive.
What Milei said about Kita
During the Deputies’ debate, the libertarian said that “yes, the Government will try to take advantage of the elections, it will believe that people are stupid. But despite the fact that people are systematically underestimated by political caste, it seems that the people react.”
On that occasion he added that “all taxes are theft.” “We are facing the great delirium of treating salary as profit. This tax is dirty and must be eliminated,” said the candidate of La Libertad Avanza, adding: “In any initiative that consists of lowering taxes , I agree.”
Then, during an interview, the President (at that time a candidate) said: “I will never raise taxes or create taxes, before I cut off my arm. I am never against individual liberty or private property. With that, the entire political caste is on the other side. ”
On the other hand, through a post on social networks published in 2016, Milei said that “The profits show the ability of corporate political parasites. “They are not ready to return the money to the person who made it.”
Profits show the ability of corporate parasites in politics. They are not willing to return the money to the person who made it.

In another post, he described the income tax as “a calamity.”
The income tax is a disaster and in the progressive version it represents a punishment for the successful. Pure envy…

On another occasion, when the president discussed whether the judges should pay or not, Milei said: “Those who complain about the fact that the judges do not pay and we will kill me. If I were you, I would request that the measure be extended to the rest of the population. “This way we all progress without becoming any worse than evil political parasites.”
Those who complain about the fact that judges don’t pay profits kill me. If I were you, I would request that the measure be extended to the rest of the population. This way we will all progress without anyone being worse off than the filthy political parasites.
